Fugro expands capabilities

Fugro Salt Subsea has taken delivery of the first of two new trenching systems from Soil Machine Dynamics with the second expected to be delivered in September this year.

The new Q1400 trenching systems will undergo field trials to test their jetting and chain cutting capabilities before they are deployed by Fugro for use on the LINCS wind farm that is being built off the Lincolnshire coast.

According to Fugro, the new machines will enable the company to deliver better services to clients in the oil and gas, renewable and power generation markets.

The company said that the decision to move into the trenching market follows on from extensive market evaluation and the SMD system was selected because Fugro believes it is capable of delivering improved performance and reduced trenching costs.
