Offshore Dredging: Toppled Platform

Location: MC-20 US Gulf of Mexico

Client Request: In 2004, Hurricane Ivan triggered a massive mudslide toppling our client’s entire jacket structure, which landed approximately 700 feet from its original location. In order to retrieve the deck the crane pedestal which was buried 20′ below mud line would need to be severed from the deck at depth. This would require massive excavation in a high current, debris filled, mud slide environment 479 feet below surface.

Our Solution: Provide a pair of Javeler TO-400 submersible dredge packages powered to excavate massive amounts of material simultaneously. This package also included sonar, depth sensors and live feed cameras needed to ensure that the excavated area allowed divers to safely enter and exit in order to install the cutting device used for severing.
