Pipeline Validation Project (PVP)
For several years, Scanmudring has been engaged by the same collaborators to remove large volumes of sand, rocks, gravel and clay around a set of pre-defined pipelines in order to make room for inspections. In 2015, 6 targets located in British North sea was dredged by the Scanmachine. In the past, both the ScanHub and the Standalone dredge have been utilized for the same purpose. This year, the scope of work involved larger volumes of mass and challenging material. Also, there was requirements for a certain slope that required extra precautions towards the live assets being uncovered. The Scanmachine was proven as a safe and efficient choice for the operation. Currently, Scanmudring is undertaking a pipeline validation project in the Danish sector of the North Sea for a new client. We believe there are more such projects to come in the near future.
