-Sonsub’s state-of-the-art cable and pipeline trenching vehicles provide the telecommunications and subsea industries with safe, reliable and diverless solutions to a complete range of subsea trenching activities. These include flexible pipe and cable trenching, excavation, towing and pre and post burial surveys. Sonsub’s Advanced Control System is the prime mover for Flexjet II, a highly versatile, advanced ROV/trencher designed specifically to perform subsea flexible pipe and cable trenching and excavation. The system incorporates the capabilities of a high performance trencher with the reliability and manoeuvrability of a neutrally buoyant flying ROV system.

-The result is a system that can be launched and recovered rapidly and offer significant advantages over conventional heavier trenching systems. The vehicles greater manoeuvrability makes it easier to accurately place over the work site without exposing flexible pipe or cables to damage. When required, several trench passes can be made over the pipe or cable. Flying or bottom crawling, pre or post burial surveys can be carried out, eliminating the need to deploy a separate vehicle.



We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
