The Alpha Subsea Diamond Wire Saws are designed for underwater cutting of horizontal or vertical pipe, casings and structure, with five models that cut from 4in to 84in O.D. (DN100-DN2100). Running on hydraulic power, the wire saw is controlled remotely using the Alpha Topside Control Panel (TCP), Alpha HPU with integrated TCP or by ROV control operable via zero leak hot stabs.
Alpha Diamond Wire Saws feature a unique hydrodynamic design that dramatically reduces centrifugal forces during operation, which means less power wasted in churning water and more power directed to cutting the workpiece.
