Swire and Seabed Solutions Join Forces

Swire Seabed and Seabed Solutions have signed an exclusive cooperation agreement for the provision of subsea dredging services worldwide.

The expertise of the two companies is complementary, with Swire Seabed providing the Seabed Excavator, a state-of-the-art tracked subsea dredging vehicle with numerous capabilities, and Seabed Solutions years of dredging competence and experience, reported Swire.

According to the company, the newly upgraded system now features a Teledyne PDS Excavator Monitoring System (EMS) which shows a real time overview of the Seabed Excavator in navigation, profile and 3D views, displaying the excavator and surrounding assets in a color-coded digital terrain model (DTM). The EMS is used for planning, navigation, progress monitoring and documentation of the scope of work.

The high safety and technological standards of the Seabed Excavator system and proven track record of both Swire Seabed and Seabed Solutions will ensure subsea dredging projects are executed safely and efficiently.

The cooperation has already secured a 6 month contract for the upgraded system with an undisclosed client, and a team formed by both parties will operate the vehicle with Swire Seabed managing the project.

The project is expected to begin in Q4 2017.
