Newly coated trash rack
To access the work site, old trash racks were removed. Once topside, they were prepared for painting by removing rust and scale. Once this was completed, some sections were modified with access hatches for ease of access, and then painted with a marine grade, two part epoxy.
Trash racks were removed, modified, and then repainted for reinstallation.
It is common practice for us to utilize two divers in the water on large tasks. This allows for added safety, better communication between the divers and the topside personnel, and quicker installation of large pieces. it also allows for tasks that would require lots of man hours to be completed in half the time.
We utilize proper rigging methods, and safe practices to ensure that all hazards such as tight quarters or confined spaces are addressed. We also take as much of the work out of the divers hands by presetting as much as we can.
Prior planning speeds up any project. We preset and staged these trash racks so the divers could rapidly access them for installation.
Prior set up is important. The angle for installation was pre-established by our topside rigging Forman and crew. This limits the amount of time on bottom with the divers trying to install items.
Our crews are versed in multiple aspects of construction. From fabrication, to Heavy Equipment Operations.
We are no stranger to heavy and complicated lifts. All our lifts have a lift plan, and a AHA or JHA is performed before lifting operations begin. Here we had to transfer a intake structure from the crane on the beach to our barge's winches.
