Start June 2015, CT Offshore’s new trencher ROV, the CTO 107-1100, will be deployed at DONG Energy’s Gode Wind 1 + 2 Offshore Wind Farms. CT Offshore will install the 97 inter-array cables.
According to CT Offshore, smoother operation and a faster and more precise burial of the cables are some of the features of the CTO 107-1100, the company’s new subsea trencher ROV, purpose built for the cable laying industry.
The new trencher ROV has an operating depth of 100 metres but with an option of up to 1,500 metres, which means that the trencher ROV also can be used for various other industry cable laying tasks besides inter-array cabling at offshore wind farms.
“We are looking very much forward to bringing this new trencher ROV into operation. The test results from our first wet-test in the North Sea just outside Esbjerg exceeded our expectations and the performance of the new CTO 107-1100 reveals a very promising future,” says Mads Car-stens, Senior Manager, Head of Subsea.
