    Sonsub Ltd (Saipem) has awarded SubSea Propulsion, a division of Klein Associates, a contract to design and build a 185hp hydraulic excavator for the new-build trencher system being constructed as part of a BlueFin cable laying project.

    The excavator uses a variable discharge nozzle exclusively designed by SubSea to allow for control of both discharge flow rate and nozzle velocity. The complete module will be constructed in aluminium and will utilise a carbon-fibre propeller designed bySubSea Propulsion to minimise weight and increase reliability.
