A&R Pull-In Heads
Abandon & Recovery (A&R) Pull-In Heads are designed and used for recovering pipelines and pulling them to the surface.
The Head is welded to the subsea pipeline then pulled back to the surface utilising the large safe working load capability. These products are entirely fabricated to the client’s requirements.
Moffat also offeremergency A&R Heads. These are used for when the end of the subsea pipeline entrance has become damaged.
In this case an emergency A&R Head is used by force entering the subsea pipe entrance utilising the angled front profiles, this opens up the pipe sufficiently for the Head to enter. Once sufficient penetration has been established, a hole is drilled through the pipe and the locking pin is inserted through the Head and pipe, providing a strong pulling position.
