The company has announced that it has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching services along 65 km of umbilical offshore Australia. The post-lay trenching works are planned to commence late 2018 with the T1 trencher. This contract award has come on the back of three successfully completed projects with this trencher offshore UAE in 2016, early 2017 and more recently in 2018.
The 25 Te self-loading trencher T1, recently upgraded with the latest remote monitoring technology control system, has successfully completed over 1700 km of trenching on a range of cables and pipelines. The T1 is designed to cut a subsea trench with a depth of up to 1.4 m in hard ground conditions. T1 can also be used in jetting mode with trench depth up to 2 m. It has proven to be a very flexible asset capable of efficient mobilisation and demobilisation onto a wide range of subsea vessels.
Andrew Piasecki, Commercial Director Cable Lay and Trenching, states, “We are extremely pleased to receive this award. It is a testament to the confidence our clients have in DeepOcean’s ability to provide burial solutions on a global basis in varying soil conditions. We are looking forward to a successful campaign and supporting our client on this key project.”
