UK-based DeepOcean has mobilised its T3200 subsea trencher onto the trenching support vessel, 'Havila Phoenix'.

It is set to trench subsea HVAC export cables at an unspecified UK offshore wind farm.

The T3200 is able to bury submarine cable in 3.5m deep trenches, in both difficult conditions and challenging ground.

Pierre Boyde, DeepOcean’s commercial director, explained: “The T3200 is a game changer for the offshore power cable industry and sets a new standard for cable burial.”

“In addition to the vehicles unrivalled power and ability to protect product to 3m in challenging seabed conditions, the asset incorporates HUMS (Health Usage and Monitoring System) for real time analysis of work rate and asset condition.”

“This important technology increases reliability and sustains subsea operations. We will be using the T3200 for the burial of export cables on a UK based windfarm in 2016 followed by the Nemo Link interconnector project in 2017 and 2018.”
