DeepOcean lands work offshore Abu Dhabi

DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching of a 42km power cable from the shore to an offshore location in the United Arab Emirates.

The company did not say who the client was. The financial details of the deal were not disclosed either.

DeepOcean will use its T1 mechanical trencher, which it recently upgraded.

The T1 is a 25-tonne self-loading wheel cutter capable of trenching small diameter cables to 20” pipelines in water depths from 0-500m and in soil conditions from loose sands to 40MPa cemented calcarenite.

According to DeepOcean modifications to T1 were performed in the UK and included trialling the trencher in various soil conditions up to 40MPa with trench depth of 1.2 meters achieved.

The T1 was subsequently transported to Abu Dhabi were further onshore trials were conducted to test the T1’s cooling system in the region’s extreme temperatures. The post-lay trenching works have now started offshore Abu Dhabi.
