CTC Marine Projects invests in integrated trenching spreadEquipment & Technology // April 4, 2012
CTC Marine Projects Ltd, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding, has announced the introduction of a new, integrated trenching spread.
This month, CTC will mobilise the DeepOcean Group-owned Northern Wave for trenching support operations. The vessel will be equipped with 1.5 megawatt (MW) jet trencher, PT-1, and mechanical trencher, T2.
"This complete trenching package, comprising the North Sea’s most powerful jet trencher and a track-based mechanical cutter will provide the ideal cost-effective trenching solution from a single platform," claimed the company.
"With the added advantage of a pre-mobilised spread, CTC is ideally positioned to undertake short lead-time projects and other spot market activities."
CTC is in the process of adding jetting capabilities and 3m swords to T2, making the track-base vehicle the ideal trencher to operate in high current areas that predominate in shallow water regions where offshore wind projects are planned.
