Pharos Strengthens Trenching Capacity with SMD Q1000
Pharos Offshore has boosted its subsea equipment fleet with the SMD built trenching vehicle, Q1000.
The Q1000 jet trenching ROV has 1000hp (750kw) of installed power coupled to high – pressure water pumps, capable of up to 3 metre trench depth.
Phil Walker, Pharos Offshore Group CEO, said: “The acquisition of Q1000 strengthens Pharos’ position within the offshore cable and pipeline installation sector, along with the TROV UTV400 which has undertaken a full refurbishment by modernising the equipment and doubling the burial capabilities.”
Operationally rated to 2000 metres, the Q1000 is currently located within the quayside workshop at Port of Blyth.
