DecomWorld: Genesis Attachments New Subsea Shear Operates at Depths Down to 10,000 Feet

Share Article

Genesis Attachments announces its new Subsea Shear, pressure tested to operate at depths down to 10,000 feet for demanding offshore applications.

Available with 32- or 46-inch jaw openings, the GSS features anti-corrosion primer and paint for supreme protection in harsh marine applications including offshore platform decommissioning, pipeline and piling cutting, and underwater steel cutting. Multi-position rigging further enhances the Subsea Shear's versatility as a platform decommissioning shear and underwater hydraulic shear, enabling it to be cable-hung and operated by a subsea power pack or from surface power.

"To design a shear capable of withstanding deep-depth pressure and corrosive salt water, we started with some of the key features of the industry-leading Genesis XP Mobile Shear and then added offshore application specifics such as Xylan® anti-corrosion coated fasteners, zinc anodes and holes along the top and bottom of the shear body for easy water drainage," says David Palvere, Genesis director of business development.

The GSS also features a heavy-duty pivot design protected by an anti-corrosion coating for structural strength and long-term durability, and sealed, greaseable pivot points.
