Allspeeds Webtool to Assist Flexlife in Decom Project

Allspeeds has supplied an integrated guillotine cutter to Flexlife as a part of the North Sea platform decommissioning project.

The application involves passing a hose though 2” pipework into a jacket leg that had previously been filled with a plugging material.

This material is cleared using a corrosive gel breaker fluid. Once completed, the end of the hose is cut-off, and the rest of the hose retrieved, the company explained.

Constructed of multiple wire layers and an inner and outer plastic sheath, the unpressurised hose is then cut using the Webtool cutter.

Webtool represents a range of hydraulic cutters and systems designed and manufactured by Allspeeds in the UK.
