Deep C has secured a contract from Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) to undertake soil plug removal inside subsea piles, as part of the Beatrice offshore wind farm development.
Seaway Heavy Lifting will install 84 jackets for the Beatrice wind turbines and two jackets for the offshore transmission modules.
Each jacket sits on 4 piles, resulting in a total of 344 piles requiring soil removal and internal pile cleaning down to 8 meters below top of pile, the company explained.
Deep C Group has fabricated a soil plug removal tool (SPRT) for the project, which operates independently and is deployed in a specialized launch & recovery frame which mates and centralizes on each pile.
“This is a strategically important award for Deep C which has given us the opportunity to demonstrate our capability to provide complex bespoke solutions,” said Odd Gustav Kvalvåg CEO of Deep C Group.
