James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) has developed the world’s most powerful M/CFE tool capable of trenching large diameter pipelines in a single pass – Twin T8000.
This piece of equipment was developed to support SapuraKencana Mexicana’s trenching requirements, JFSE said in its latest release.
The offshore construction company needed more than 14km of a 36” pipeline with concrete coating to be trenched one meter on top of the pipe.
The tool was developed utilizing JFSE’s patented T8000 technology which has been responsible for the successful completion of hundreds of subsea excavation projects worldwide over the past 19 years.
JFSE engineers created a solution which combined immense power with precision controllability by bringing two units together and developing the existing technology further.
The Twin T8000 has a total maximum output of 16,000 liters per second and had to achieve 0mm + 300mm accuracy of trench on this project.
