Jackup Housing Platform – “The Clone”

Corporativo Costa Afuera on a desire for growth and improvement, founded the shipbuilding division, and builds upon approval of the Directorate General of Merchant Marine, a self-elevating and self accommodation capacity operable by technical personnel platform. This is the first built in Mexico for service companies engaged in study for Soil Mechanics, Underwater and Marine Construction Works.



It is a residential boat, auto lift and autopropulsable, platform type by a hydraulic lift is in order to support the basis of pernas on the seabed, to raise the center of the water surface and thus acquire stability, without the movement of the waves of the sea, lakes, rivers, bays, etc..

It was produced to assist work as soil mechanics, electrical recording in oil well, lake, siting of marine and subsea structures in support of diving work, recovery of beaches and piloting subject to effluent pipes to the sea.

Main Uses

Soil Mechanics

In the work of soil mechanics on the platform, the drilling equipment is placed to obtain geological samples from the subsoil, and with the stability and safety that is obtained by not being balanced by the effect of the waves, a period of I work with a 100% effectiveness in the works and thus avoid damages to the equipment of soil mechanics.

Works of studies of oil wells in lake areas

In this type of work it is very important to maintain the oil wells in lagoon areas, lagoons, marshes, rivers, in optimum production conditions. After the equipment that drilled them is removed, there is no other equipment that can perform the works when the well is in production.

Placement of marine and submarine structures

In these works that are carried out in areas near the beaches, it is impossible to use any boat that is afloat, that is not affected by the waves.

Beach recovery

They are placed in the material bank, which in the most common case does not exceed the 500 m length of the beach to be recovered and thus with equipment that has the platform on the deck, the sand is pumped to its original place without no interruption by tidal waves, or little draft at the extraction site.


They can carry out dredging work in conflictive areas by waves and swells using their crane arm as a support for the dredging pump, with or without a cutter, and it is very important for the dredging of channels of Hydroelectric and Nucleoelectric stations, they can be placed at the entrance of the channels with all the security of not being affected by the waves of the same, giving this a great performance, even in drafts of 1.5 meters.

Construction of effluent pipelines to the sea

In this work you start at the beach and it ends inside the sea, it is basic the work that is done from the deck of the platform, for the submarine union of the flanges of the pipes, as well as the placement of ballasts and piles to guarantee the fixation to the seabed of the same.

 The “CLON” Platform can be placed with umbilical diving equipment on board, and thus form a stable diving work platform, with the assistance for the divers of a crane arm with a capacity of 10 tons and a length of 65 feet.

With the CLON you can perform the work without loss of time by the marine currents and waves, causing tidal waves that put at risk the work programs, causing delays that represent extra costs not considered in the projects.
