DeepOcean Wins Middle East Post-Lay Trenching Gig

DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching and backfilling works on 56 kilometers of power cable offshore United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The contract follows two completed projects offshore UAE in 2016 and early 2017. The post-lay trenching and backfilling works are planned to start late 2017 with DeepOcean’s T1 mobilized from the UK.

The 25 Te self-loading trencher T1 has been upgraded to cut a subsea trench with a maximum depth of 1.4 meters in various soil conditions up to 40MPa, the company explains. The trencher is also capable of carrying out mechanical backfill operations to assist in cable protection, Deepocean added.

Tony Stokes, managing director of Asia Pacific & Middle East, said: “We are extremely pleased to receive this award as it is a testament to the confidence our clients have in DeepOcean’s ability to provide burial solutions in the most difficult soil conditions. We are looking forward to a successful campaign and the continuation of building our presence in the Middle East through supporting our clients with market leading assets.”
