Red7Marine Group has announced the launch of its new range of Controlled Flow (CFE) and Mass Flow (MFE) seabed excavation tools, marketed as 'SeaVex' together with the opening of the new Red7Marine Offshore Marine Base located in Southtown Road in Great Yarmouth, consisting of a dedicated vessel berth, warehousing and storage facilities.
Fast growing global provider Red7Marine Offshore Ltd, who specialises in the provision of cost effective services and equipment to the oil, gas and renewable industries announced the launch of their SeaVex dredging and excavation division, offering a range of controlled and mass flow excavation tools designed to offer multiple application seabed excavation solutions.
SeaVex has been designed and built by Red7Marine Group’s subsidiary company Red7Marine Offshore Limited, being strategically based in Gt Yarmouth and Aberdeen with the primary purpose of servicing its clients’ needs efficiently and competitively offering excavation solutions through multiple applications.
Unlike other systems, SeaVex offers a multitude of alternative applications over pipe and cable burial/de-burial, which typically includes; de-burial of habitats/modules and UXO, free-span correction, sandwave clearance, rock dump dispersal, harbour clearance, de-burial of drill cuttings, spud can cleaning, salvage for recovery and access, along with seabed levelling and preparation.
Whatever the application, SeaVex works to extremely high tolerances, providing the client with live acoustic, sonar monitoring and recording from the tool itself which converts into highly productive working and product safety, both being key considerations to any project.
The range can be deployed in a variety of configurations to suit shallow water depths and application.
Peter Flint, Managing Director of Red7Marine Offshore, heads up the groups enhanced offshore services with a team of specialists, providing services in offshore oil and gas, drill support tooling, diving and ROV, renewables cables/diving and support services, and with the introduction of SeaVex, is able to provide a fully integrated one-stop-shop of services to its valued clients.
