Pharos Adds Jet-Trenching ROV

Friday, May 24, 2019

Pharos Offshore Group said it recently expanded its portfolio of trenching assets with the state-of-the-art Q1000 jet-trenching remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) from manufacturer SMD.

The latest addition to Pharos Offshore’s rental fleet, the Q1000 features a high-tech control and measurement system, sea-state 6 launch and recovery system (LARS) and a modular design which enables the Q1000 to be rapidly shipped, set-up and ready to operate anywhere in the world.

The Q1000 is optimal for pre-lay or post-lay trenching operations of subsea pipelines, cables and umbilicals, with the advantageous capability of being able to simultaneous lay and bury subsea cables, the company said.

It fills a market gap for a mobile, reliable and high-powered jet trenching ROV and has been highly effective on a range of burial projects in recent years.

So far this year, the company has reported work scopes for trenching and excavation campaigns in Europe, North America and South America. The company noted that tendering activity is picking up in other global regions too, as the Pharos Offshore Business Development teams make their way through to customers, globally.

In addition, Pharos Offshore commented that with the large collation of orders the company has confirmed in recent months, they are further expanding personnel levels within the operations, technological and commercial departments of the company, adding to the recruitment drive already completed in 2018.

CEO Phil Walker has also expanded the executive management team, which now has over 100 years of collective experience across the subsea installation and burial industries.
