Royal IHC’s Offshore Energy Division has successfully delivered a Hi-Traq Mk 1 - a state of the art, multi-purpose trenching vehicle - to a UK based company for operations in the Gulf of Mexico. The vehicle has recently successfully completed its first campaign, proving the revolutionary technology.
The 1,600-horse power vehicle has the ability to be configured for pipe or cable installation. Tooling packages (mechanical cutter and high-powered jetting) suit a spectrum of seabed conditions and terrains. The unique four track design allows the vehicle to navigate complex seabed terrain and provides a high degree of maneuverability. This highly versatile and efficient machine provides the operator with a robust flexible and highly capable solution, designed to reduce operating costs and project risk.
Andre Merlino, Executive Director Offshore Energy, said: “We are proud to successfully deliver this world-class spread of equipment to our client. Our next generation multi-tool trencher has been designed to deliver significant operational capability to offshore O&G pipes and renewable power cables, giving our client a competitive advantage in the marketplace. We look forward to providing them with ongoing support throughout operations and the life cycle of the equipment.”
