The ROV provides a compact high powered trenching capability for the burial of cables, umbilicals and 500mm diameter pipes up to 2-3 metres deep. The use of variable high pressure jetting optimises the trenching operation to suit a range of sea-bed conditions varying from soft to hard. The unit was delivered complete with a dedicated high sea-state launch and recovery system.
