Controlled flow excavation (CFE) services expert James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) – part of James Fisher and Son plc – has developed a low draft, lightweight excavator.

The SP2000 ULD will primarily be used for shallow water excavation and shore pull works including trench maintenance during pull-in operations, post-trenching and backfilling.

The tool, which is currently mobilizing for its first project, is also capable of pipeline and cable deburial for inspection, repair and maintenance, seabed preparation, freespan correction and rock dump dispersal. JFSE is responsible for the excavation of 300km of pipelines and cables in the Gulf.

Faisel Chaudry, Middle East regional director, said: “The SP2000 ULD is an important addition to our offering in the Middle East as we continue to support new and existing clients with a range of requirements.”

The SP2000 ULD is ultra-lightweight meaning it can be deployed from a land-based or amphibious excavator or a shallow water barge or vessel. Despite its small size, it is capable of cutting up to 300kPa.

The new system adds to the James Fisher Group’s trenching and excavation offering in the Middle East which encompasses a full delivery of services from shore to deepwater, including pre and post-lay trenching, backfilling, trench maintenance, repair and maintenance dredging and decommissioning works.
