Swire Seabed and Seabed Solutions have signed an exclusive cooperation agreement for the provision of subsea dredging services worldwide.
The expertise of the two companies is complementary, with Swire Seabed providing the Seabed Excavator, subsea dredging vehicle, and Seabed Solutions years of dredging competence and experience.
The cooperation has already secured a 6-month contract for the upgraded system with an undisclosed client, and a team formed by both parties will operate the vehicle with Swire Seabed managing the project. Work will start in Q4 2017.
Christian Aas, managing director of Seabed Solutions AS, said: “We are delighted to have entered into this agreement with Swire Seabed, enabling Seabed Solutions to operate the newest and most powerful subsea excavator on the market. In combination with our experienced crew and project management, the system will be more effective than other subsea dredging equipment available on the market.”
Arvid Pettersen, CEO at Swire Seabed, commented: “We are excited to begin this strategic partnership with dredging specialist Seabed Solutions. The alliance will enable both companies to offer customized, safe and efficient dredging solutions to clients worldwide.”
