Controlled flow excavation (CFE) services expert James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) said it has developed a low draft, lightweight excavator.
According to JFSE, the SP2000 ULD will primarily be used for shallow water excavation and shore pull works including trench maintenance during pull-in operations, post-trenching and backfilling.
The tool, which is currently mobilising for its first project, is also capable of pipeline and cable deburial for inspection, repair and maintenance, seabed preparation, freespan correction and rock dump dispersal.
The new system adds to the James Fisher’s trenching and excavation offering in the Middle East.
Faisel Chaudry, Middle East regional director of JFSE, said:
“We are committed to identifying solutions for our clients, using our vast experience to be innovative about the possibilities and applications of CFE.
“The SP2000 ULD is an important addition to our offering in the Middle East as we continue to support new and existing clients with a range of requirements.”
