GENESIS GSS - subsea shears
The GENESIS GSS subsea shears are pressure tested for use at depths down to 3,000 metres and are therefore ideal for dismantling platforms, pipelines or pile structures and for cutting steel under water.
High performance even under water
A lightweight that packs a punch! Despite its light weight, the GDS has tremendous cutting power thanks to the large hydraulic cylinders. The inverted installation offers ideal protection for the piston rod.
Efficient and suitable
The GSS allows for highly efficient working even under water because the optimised jaw geometry significantly increases productivity. The advantages of the integrated speed valve, which enables short cycle times during cutting, also have a positive impact on productivity.
Applications in a maritime environment require operation in any position.
This is made possible by special DNV approved crane lifting eyes on the sides of the shears. Water can drain easily through the openings on the top and bottom of the body of the shears, allowing for additional subsea functions.
Quality and corrosion protection
GENESIS stands for top quality even in subsea applications.
Like all GENESIS shears, the GSS is made of fine grained steel and is equipped with high quality, precision fit cutting blades with high-accuracy adjustment options.
All surfaces of the shears offer optimum corrosion protection thanks to a special primer and paint coat. Zinc anodes additionally provide galvanic corrosion protection.
Good service ensures high productivity
The GSS subsea shears also offer the option of using the cutting blades in four ways and the piercing tips can be replaced easily without welding. The inner workings of the shears are completely protected while easily accessible openings facilitate service work on the shears.
These shears also meet a high standard of quality. Custom-made models are also available for maritime applications. You can assign these shears a name of your choosing.
