Structure and topside removal

Tailor-made solutions for safe, efficient and cost-effective structure, and topside removal.

We know that you have to deal with unique and complex challenges in your topside, structure and pile removal projects. IHC IQIP cooperates closely with you to face these challenges together. Whether you need advice with the evaluation and calculation, assistance with excavating and dredging, support with cutting activities or the careful and safely handling and lifting of topsides, structures and/or pipes, we are here to make your project as safe, efficient, and cost-effective as possible.

DECOMMISSIONING ADVICE FOR STRUCTURE AND TOPSIDE REMOVAL

At IHC IQIP, we take safety seriously. Not only at our own yards, but also on your projects. That’s why we would like to advise you on your decommissioning projects. We can assist you by evaluating the scope of the work and demonstrating how you can remove topsides, structures and piles using the safest and most efficient methods. Together, we can define the most suitable equipment and services for your project.

One of the most important steps in this phase is to calculate precisely how you can remove the topside, structure and piles safely. Based on our extensive offshore experience, we have developed a validated by DNV-GL and advanced technique to calculate this. This method is designed to prevent the piles from tearing and sliding, ensuring their safe removal. Our method is exceptional in this market, and you will only find it at IHC IQIP.

After the calculation stage, we will advise you on the most suitable approach and equipment. You will receive all the conclusions we have drawn from the feasibility study, including the results of our Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Depending on the requirements, we can also fully customise our equipment or develop tailor-made solutions specific to your project. With our years of experience in this market, IHC IQIP will make sure your project becomes a success.

But, this is only the first stage of your decommissioning project and our services don’t stop here. We also offer other essential services such as excavating, dredging, cutting, handling and lifting the topside, structures and piles.

OFFERING YOU OUR EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN EXCAVATING AND DREDGING

IHC is renowned for its many years of experience in excavating and dredging. Although it is normally offered for other projects, IHC IQIP can also offer this service for your decommissioning project. Our experienced team will ensure that your excavating and dredging activities go smoothly. We offer you specialist equipment that can excavate on the inside and outside of the piles. In addition, we can dredge around the structure and piles, so you can remove them safely.

CUTTING TOOLS TO MAKE YOUR DECOMMISSIONING PROJECT HAPPEN

Utilising the abrasive waterjet or diamond wire tool, we can assist with cutting your piles or structures. We can cut them from the inside or outside, determined by what is the safest and most effective method.

We think that cutting is a very important step in your project. You have to contend with many issues, risks and regulations. Our experienced personnel are more than happy to assist you with the challenges of this task. Of course, we are also ready to help you with the next phase of your decommissioning project.

HANDLING AND LIFTING YOUR TOPSIDE, STRUCTURE AND PILES

At IHC IQIP, we have a wealth of experience in handling and lifting topsides, structures, and piles. We have an extensive track record, as a result of working with multiple clients on their projects in The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Norway and Belgium. From this, we have developed specialist equipment to handle and lift your topsides, structures, and piles successfully. It is specifically designed with safety and efficiency in mind. The equipment can also be handled remotely to minimise the risk of injury during this phase of the project.
