James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) said it has brought the world’s most powerful tool to the market to support clients with large scale excavations.
Namely, the JFSE’s expert team recently completed re-engineering project on the SP12000 excavation tool.
The SP12000, reportedly, produces more than 6 tonnes of thrust at full power and a volume output of 12,000 litres of water per second, making it ideal for large seabed preparation projects, sandwave clearances, freespan rectifications and large diameter pipeline trenching.
Graham Murdoch, technical director of James Fisher Subsea Excavation, is part of a team that has been responsible for the successful completion of more than 400 projects over a period of 18 years. He said: “We already had the most diverse and well-proven range of mass flow excavators available. Adding the SP12000 to our range means we can support our clients on an even wider range of projects. The ability to match different tools to any given workscope allows us to provide the most time and cost-effective solutions available for projects worldwide.
“The SP12000 is a massive step forward in mass, or controlled, flow excavation. It has immense power with the capability to provide large-scale clearance and trenching, but it retains the precision and controllability to be as safe and exact as our other market-leading tools. This is a real game changer for our clients who have large-scale requirements.
“The technological advances we have developed during this engineering phase have already started to be transferred to our other excavators with the benefits being realised on recent projects for our clients.”
