Seatools Upgrades HighWire for Boskalis

Seatools has completed the upgrade of a HighWire survey grade taut wire system, to be deployed by Boskalis to determine the position of a subsea cable plough during an installation project.

Initially delivered in 2001, the HighWire system served Boskalis during the installation of submerged sewage outfall pipes. For this project the wire orientation needed to be changed from nearly vertical to nearly horizontal, the company said.

Jan Frumau, managing director at Seatools, said: “In our industry, taut wire systems are mostly commonly deployed as DP position reference systems. However, the technology can be used for all types of offshore operations that require accurate and real-time measurement of submerged objects, such as uninterrupted pile driving, mudmat or caisson installation, and marine civil engineering projects. Particularly owing to their robustness, ability to cope with ambient noise, and mixed zone applicability, taut wires make an ideal choice for a wide variety of underwater operations. We are glad that a reputable company like Boskalis affirms these benefits and chose our Highwire system yet again.”
