Marsol launches new offshore service
Company to provide emergency repair of pipelines in shallow water zones
Marsol International, a Dubai-based offshore technology provider, has launched a new service for emergency repair of pipelines in shallow water zones.
The service has been developed over the last six years to access delicate areas not normally serviced from sea or shore.
It offers a complete range of specialised equipment required to work in intertidal zones and will be driven by the nature of the pipeline failure or damage, the pipeline size, specification, and site location.
Mike Young, managing director of Marsol International, commented: “Marsol has a strong team of engineers who understand first-hand the real-life scenarios on a busy oil export hub.
"We have identified a need to offer an emergency service to protect pipelines in shallow waters, and we have the skills and equipment to manage the challenges intertidal zones present, such as shifting sands and tides.
"Marsol has worked to develop sophisticated support assets such as Rhino craft and Versadock – products that have been tried and tested in hostile and difficult environments.
“Should a pipeline require repair, time is of the essence. Safeguarding against environmental damage, minimising the impact on production and ultimately protecting company reputation is vital - EPRS offers an experienced team who can act fast.
"That said, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure, so Marsol also offers a pre-emptive Pipeline Integrity Management service to ensure all bases are covered.”
Marsol has worked with various partners to develop multipurpose tools and equipment. Its specialist diver operated equipment can be used in dry areas and intertidal zones, as well as subsea.
