Ultimate Trenching Tool Delivered

Long-standing SMD customer DeepOcean has now received delivery of their new 1000hp QTrencher, the QT1000.

The recently upgraded T-3200 heavy duty trenching tractor is set to sit alongside the industry‐leading free flying, jet trenching ROV on DeepOcean’s Havila Phoenix vessel.

Paul Davison, SMD’s Deputy MD said: “The QT1000 now has a proven presence in the trenching market and client feedback indicates that it is the first choice for deep burial and protection of power cables.”

The class leading Havila Phoenix vessel will offer construction, installation and trenching support. It is equipped with a unique combination of features allowing it to satisfy combined construction and trenching requirements of DeepOcean’s customers.

As well as two SMD vehicles the vessel’s ultimate trenching spread features a 250te active heave compensated offshore crane, 1500m2 deck area, 140 berth accommodation and optional 2000te carousel.

The QT1000 is capable of trenching pipelines, umbilicals and cables up to three meters in the seabed, at up to 2000 msw.

Both the QT1000 and heavy duty T-3200 trencher were supplied with high sea state handling systems, with proven technology for operation in rough conditions associated with the North Sea.

The upgrade also included conversion to state of the art DVECS II control system; both vehicles are now operated from common control system software which offers advanced diagnostics, fault finding and the facility for remote monitoring from the office.
