Using an abrasive cable to cut a sunken ship in to pieces for salvage. Cable part starts at around 6:55. At least they didn't have to worry about coolant! :D

Thanks for posting the link, I had not seen this technique before used to cut such a large ship. Amazing how clean the cuts were through all of the vessel's decks and even the ship's engines.
It almost did look as if it were somehow cut on a giant bandsaw.

I saw the last video of when they cut the sub in half with that system. Very neat to see!
