SMD to Deliver QT1000 to KT Submarine

SMD announced a contract award with KT Submarine for a QT1000 high powered cable installation and maintenance ROV.

The 2000m rated ROV embraces the latest technologies in jet trenching and ROV design with 1000hp of total installed power and 940hp of variable jetting power. The QT1000 is capable of trenching rigid products, power cables and telecommunication cables up to three metres into the seabed, SMD said.

The scope of work includes integration of a telescopic docking head onto an existing A-Frame on the M/V Miraero with an option for installation on a new power cable installation vessel. The new launch and recovery equipment, including fast response winch and umbilical cable protection system will widen the M/V Miraero’s operational weather window.

The trenching ROV will be delivered in Q3 2015, with installation and sea trials planned for Korea, SMD wrote.

Paul Davison, Deputy MD at SMD commented, “KT have been a loyal customer for SMD and we are delighted our equipment is helping their business develop and expand. We are particularly pleased to convert KT to SMD jet trenching technology and help their growth into the power cable and oil & gas installation markets in Asia.”
