Atlantic explorer clears over 5,000 seabed boulders and uxo’s for eon and dong energy. Production up to 80 boulders/uxo removed in just 24 hours!!
We are proud to announce that since our purchase of the Atlantic Explorer, and in conjunction with ROGE systems Ltd providing the ROGE/ROV system and ROV support and personnel, the ship has been constantly on charter and has moved literally 1000’s of sub-sea boulders from a large wind farm site on the UK east coast this winter. The site is strewn with heavy boulders and even through the terrible North Sea Storms of 2013/14, the ship has continued to clear boulders and survey the ground in preparation for the installation ships and the cable lay operation (Atlantic Carrier – see above) at an alarming rate – faster than any other clearance operation and at half the cost!
The DP1 Atlantic Explorer is also expected to be entering operations this summer laying cable protection (Mattress lay and stone bags) from her 300 ton holds and using the ROGE / ROV to lift and position the protection accurately into position on the seabed in both Germany and the UK. The ROGE/ROV operates through a 4M Sq. Moon pool and can lift up to 15 tons from the seabed whilst concurrently using her HD Cameras, sonar and blueview capability to survey and document the area and the move. A unique ship and ability which can lift, cut, drill and grab items in seabed up to 15 tons in weight in a single operation and at depths of over 4 kilometres!
