Following years of research and development, IHC built the Hi-Traq to bring forward the next generation of trenching vehicle to the market. The vehicle offers enhanced manoeuvrability and the powerful tooling will enable safe, efficient burial in a range of seabed conditions. The Hi-Traq vehicle has recently completed onshore cutter testing and is entering final commissioning prior to being mobilised for sea trials. Canyon, with a strong track record in trenching, was the ideal partner to work with IHC to bring together both engineering, design and build knowledge with operational expertise.
Alongside the co-operation to jointly market Hi-Traq, IHC will be providing further services to Canyon including engineering, modifications and upgrades to existing Canyon equipment. Additionally, both companies will collaborate to utilise existing and new assets to extend the range of services offered from both businesses, involving a wider scope of equipment pushing the businesses forwards in both current and diversified markets.
