X-Subsea completes project off West African coast delivering unique solution for shore approach trenching.
The project scope of work involved the trenching of a 10” pipeline close to the shore with a target burial depth of 2m for a distance of 18.4Km.
The key challenge that X-Subsea engineers encountered was meeting the client’s objective of performing excavation whilst the Lay Barge was laying pipeline. To achieve this goal, our highly skilled engineers adapted our patented Ultra Low Draft Twin R2000 Excavation Tool which resulted in allowing the trenching to be carried out effectively along the shore approach section in waters below a water depth of 1.5m.
This highly adaptable tool, combined with an innovative technique where Controlled Flow Excavation (CFE) was used, has revolutionised the shore-approach trenching market and X-Subsea’s solution has generated a great deal of interest in the West African region and in other geographical regions.
This unique and innovative trenching solution continues to build on X-Subsea’s unrivalled track record for developing and delivering effective, efficient and safe solutions in the seabed intervention business.
