Triumph's new build Floating Windfarm Development Vessels will be fitted with SMD QT1600 trencher
09.10.2020Triumph's new build Floating Windfarm Development Vessels will be fitted with Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd free-flying QT1600 trencher.
The SMD 1200kW QT1600 is the most powerful and flexible inter-array trenching ROV globally, with the ability to jet trench to 3m in 100KPa soil conditions or chain cut 4m MBR cable to 2m in 600KPa soil conditions. The selectable tooling skids allows options for free-fly jetting to 2000m or hard ground chain cutting to 1000m, ideal for fixed or floating fields.
The compact chain cutter system is highly maneuverable with a tight turning circle capability for second ends and also includes SMDs well proven hybrid cutter boom with integral jetting, for operations in soft rock or sands, making it ideal for variable ground.
The QT1600 will be fitted with a Lloyds Sea State 5-6 cursor LARS system with a slack and snatch umbilical motion compensator, for rough weather operations which maximizes the operational window. Triumph’s SMD QT1600 has ‘over the horizon’ operation capability and can be supported from our dedicated onshore operations center.
