Autumn 2018

Smaller, lighter, faster

New subsea excavation tools developed to meet the needs of the European offshore wind market.

The team at James Fisher Subsea Excavation has responded to requests for smaller tools capable of working in shallow waters, by designing and re-engineering two new Ultra Low Draft (ULD) tools.

The two new excavators (the T4000 ULD, and the SP6000 ULD) are small and lightweight, but designed to be stable, powerful and accurate in shallow water – making them ideal for the European offshore wind market.

Graham Murdoch, technical director at JFSE says:

‘We are committed to constantly evolving our range, particularly in response to client requirements. We looked at the fluid dynamics and efficiencies of our equipment and have again satisfied the needs of our clients.’

The expanded range can operate in water depths from 1m to 300m handling soils ranging from soft sand to clays with shear strength of 300kPa. Its development follows the success of JFSE’s TwinR2000 ULD - its popularity demonstrated the need to re-engineer additional tools for an expanded range of options.
