Perry Tritech delivers advanced cable plowVessel & ROV News // March 22, 2000
The system - designated Deep Venture 1 - built by Perry Tritech as part of a cooperative development program with Advanced Technology Systems, incorporates many new and advanced plow technologies, such as a subsea cable engine and a swept-flow jetting system.
The company says special materials have been used extensively to reduce system weight and develop high-speed performance. The unit has undergone successful land trials to prove the performance specifications, and is due to start work shortly.
Allen Leatt, President of Perry Tritech stated, "Our work with General Dynamics Advanced Technology Systems (GDATS) clearly demonstrates the strides we have been undertaking in advancing the science of plowing technology. These developments have moved the state of the art well beyond the traditional agricultural approach by using a highly refined systems engineering approach. We are very pleased to have been working with ATS on this program."
