UK: CTC Marine Projects Invests in Integrated Trenching Spread Solution
CTC Marine Projects, Ltd., a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding AS, announces the introduction of an industry leading integrated trenching spread.
This month, CTC will mobilise the DeepOcean Group owned Northern Wave vessel for trenching support operations. The vessel will be equipped with CTC’s 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 3 metre swords to T2 making this track- base 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.”
