Substructure’s custom-built equipment, components, and tools enable us to complete jobs more efficiently and more safely and produce a higher-quality product. On any given job, it is likely that Substructure will create some unique tool or component to improve efficiency, safety, and/or the end product’s expected quality. Using Substructure’s expansive fabrication shop, Substructure engineers and technicians are able to develop creative solutions to any marine-based problem.
Custom form clamps built by Substructure for pile encapsulation jobs are a great example of our equipment customization process. A long series of development, testing, customization, and fabrication resulted in a custom-designed, rigid form clamp that provides consistent pressure on all sides of the jacket. This consistency eliminates jacket blowouts and reduces excessive use of epoxy, resulting in a better encapsulation. Substructure follows this design, test, customize, and fabricate process for all of its jobs – from diving, to construction, to surveying. The goal in creating custom-built equipment is always to increase efficiency, to reduce risks, and/or to increase the quality and reliability of the end product.
