15 November 2018

The multi-million dollar project was completed ahead of time with equipment designed and made in under four months

Unique Group and Innovo team members worked together to meet the project’s requirements of providing bespoke equipment to reduce operating times and ensure a cost effective project within a very tight delivery schedule. The equipment was designed, manufactured and delivered in under four months, which in turn helped Saipem to meet the operator’s deadline for kick-off operations.

Internal and external dredging tools, diamond wire cutting tools and internal cutting tools based on abrasive water jet technology, operating at 1,500 bar, were provided for the project along with skilled operators to support the operation.

“We are very pleased to have completed this project within the stipulated timeline,” said Unique Group division manager Rakesh Bangera.

“Our aim is to be a trusted partner for our clients right from the design stage up until the delivery so that all the requirements are duly met.”

Stefano Malagodi, Innovo managing director, added: “This project exemplifies our and Unique Group’s decommissioning capabilities in the decommissioning arena, where close collaboration, innovative engineering, tight project management and safe operations are paramount.”
