OEM Wellhead Subsea Systems (Manufacturer)
Various machining scopes all ad hoc and urgent works requiring immediate resolution. Work was carried out on sites worldwide.
Challenge Set By Customer
The customer required a specific solution for external turning of 200 pipes. For urgent offshore load out , Glacier developed boring slides and machine modifications in two days and mobilised for day/nightshift to achieve the deadline.
A weld prep was machined onto a short housing and due to the features/short length an alternative method was used, as standard cutting machines would not be capable due limited length of diameter.
The Glacier in-house design team modified/manufactured equipment to meet specific to customer requirements within two days. All equipment was onsite with the team of technicians within three days of receiving the enquiry, with the project completed within 10 days to the customer’s satisfaction.
The customer was able to deliver pipes ahead of schedule receiving praise from end client and in turn securing additional works with significant savings and reduced downtime to the customer’s fabrication shop due to Glacier’s ability to provided a turn key solution as opposed to sending to 3rd party machine shop.
