Scanmudring shear cutters are adapted from the best quality hydraulic shear supplier in the onshore segment. The idea of adapting onshore demolition methods offshore is something Scanmudring do with pride. There are several hundreds of cuts done for each offshore cut and adapting the lessons learned and solid proven design, make it subsea friendly is part of the Scanmudring philosophy.
The shears can be used for cutting of pipelines, braces and most tubular and non-tubular members in an efficient manner. The shears have also proven to be efficient for cutting of umbilical, I-beams, channel iron, steel plate, wore, rebar, concrete etc. The hydraulic shears can also be used for lifting pipeline/bundle sections into subsea baskets on the seabed. The shears can be mounted on our Scanmachines or deployed via crane and topside powered with umbilical. Typical power need is 350 bar hydraulic power unit and a twin line hydraulic umbilical.
