Diamond Wire Cutting, Drilling and Precision Removal on Land and Undersea


Diamond Wire Concrete & Metal Cutting

Every concrete cutting job is unique. That’s why our engineering team develops a coordinated, visually-delineated plan to be followed on the job site to maximize efficiency while minimizing completion time.

Component Segmentation

We have cut several steam generators and related heavy components over the past twelve years. As we continue to innovate changes in diamond wire cutting, the efficiency of SG segmentation is rapidly growing.

Underwater Cutting

No two metal cutting projects are the same. But whether the project involves slicing metal tanks above ground, or cleaving conductor pipes or platform legs undersea, the diamond wire cutting process is ideal.
