Marsol International Ltd, a Dubai-based global marine solutions provider focused on the offshore oil terminal market and related infrastructure, has launched a specialist Emergency Pipeline Repair Service (EPRS) to safeguard shallow water intertidal zones.
EPRS has been developed over the last six years to service all types of environmental situations and geotechnical configurations, to address the inherent challenge of accessing delicate areas not normally serviced from sea or shore.
Marsol International has worked with various partners to develop multipurpose tools and equipment which offer functionality and versatility resulting from the company’s experience in developing specialist diver operated equipment, capable of work in dry areas, the intertidal zone and subsea.
Mike Young, managing director of Marsol International, explains: “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.
