CTC Marine Projects Ltd., a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding AS, has recently announced the introduction of an industry leading integrated trenching spread.
During April CTC effectively mobilised the DeepOcean Group-owned Northern Wave vessel for trenching support operations. The vessel will be equipped with 1.5 Mega Watt jet trencher PT-1 and mechanical trencher T2.
This complete trenching package, comprising of the North Sea’s most powerful jet trencher and a track-based mechanical cutter from a company owned vessel with in-house survey crew, will provide the ideal cost-effective trenching solution from a single platform. 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 three metre swords to T2, making this track-based vehicle the ideal trencher to operate in high current areas that predominate in shallow water regions where offshore wind projects are planned.
Pierre Boyde, CTC’s commercial and business development director says of the new investment, ‘‘We are excited to be introducing the most capable, versatile and cost effective trenching spread in the North Sea.’’
