CT Offshore has launched a subsea trencher ROV. The new CTO 107-1100 will be deployed at Dong Energy’s Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farms, where CT Offshore will use it to install the 97 inter-array cables.

CT Offshore’s new subsea trencher ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle), CTO 107-1100, is purpose built for the cable laying industry. Smoother operation and a faster and more precise burial of the cables – these are some of the features of the new CTO 107-1100. The new trencher ROV has an operating depth of 100 m but with an option of up to 1,500 m, which means that the trencher ROV also can be used for various other industry cable laying tasks besides inter-array cabling at offshore wind farms.

“We are looking very much forward to bringing this new trencher ROV into operation. The test results from our first wet-test in the North Sea just outside Esbjerg exceeded our expectations and the performance of the new CTO 107-1100 reveals a very promising future,” says Mads Carstens, Senior Manager, Head of Subsea.
