DeepOcean has been awarded a contract within the oil and gas sector for the provision of post-lay trenching services along 65km of umbilical offshore Australia.
The post-lay trenching works are planned to start late 2018 with the T1 trencher, DeepOcean said on Wednesday.
The 25 Te self-loading trencher T1, recently upgraded with the latest remote monitoring technology control system, has completed over 1,700 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 meters in hard ground conditions. T1 can also be used in jetting mode with trench depth up to 2m. It has proven to be a very flexible asset capable of efficient mobilization and demobilization 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.”
