Project: Jubilee 1A field development
Scope of works:
To supply an Emergency release cutting system which would deploy a cut in 2 seconds. This was for use on the deck of a vessel to cut a tensioned 200mm diameter nylon mooring rope.
Cutter package comprising – JAG HGC200 hydraulic guillotine cable cutter with roller guide system to accurately guide and protect the material to be cut including a horizontal mounting frame to achieve working height requirements and stability of the cutter unit.
Control unit comprising – Sealed steel enclosure, hydraulic air pump, hydraulic hose assemblies, gauges, valves, bladder accumulators and twin isolation control units to avoid accidental release.
JAG hydraulic cutting equipment was chosen for this application because of the ability to supply a standard cutter product that gave a cost effective solution which forfilled the technical brief.
The equipment was well received by the client after initial cutting trials exceed expectations.
