Seatools Presents Carrera E Precision Flow Excavation Spread

Following an extensive R&D trajectory, Seatools is now introducing the Carrera E 3D motion-controlled precision flow excavation spread. 

“Seatools developed the Carrera E mass flow excavation spread leveraging its proven capabilities in heave compensation and ROV control technologies. The patent-pending spread features 3D motion control, which enables precision excavation operations at a minimum of seabed disturbance,” the Dutch subsea technology company stated.

“Thanks to the Carrera E’s incorporated dynamic positioning (DP) capabilities, the tool may follow a pre-programmed track (e.g., a cable route) with high precision and in a highly automated manner.”

Johan Sol, responsible for business development, said: “Early on in the development process we analyzed excavation operations as well as the direct and indirect cost drivers from a client point of view. Especially in terms of indirect cost drivers – vessel day rates, environmental downtime, survey costs, and crew costs – we found significant room for improvement: in some cases, total project costs could be cut by 50% while realizing reduced environmental impact and safety improvements.”

With over 500 kW of installed power dedicated to dredging, the spread takes on a wide range of soil conditions.

The LARS, including tool, only requires a 20-foot container footprint and a minimum of vessel interfaces. Combined with the fact that no tugger wires are required, all this means the Carrera E can be deployed from a wide range of vessels, including smaller, low day rate vessels.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
