HIGH POWERED FREE-SWIMMING JET TRENCHER
The Q‐Trencher 1600 is a high powered free‐swimming jet trencher, with optional track drive for enhanced burial capability and optional tracked skids for bespoke tool deployment. With 1.2MW of total power, the trencher delivers 800kW of variable high pressure jetting power for trenching and up to 300kW of LP water jetting for trench backwash, eduction or trench collapse.
The complete system spread sets a new standard in severe weather deployment operation, up to sea state 6 as standard and able to deploy the ROV in buoyant or heavy mode up to 18Te, allowing deployment of chain cutters and drill systems.
