Abstract:

It is understood that the aim of the project is to acquire a system for laying and burying cables and small pipes so as to provide protection against dragging anchors, trawl boards, moving ice, and similar hazards. However, the statement of work bears the title Procurement Specification for Underwater Trencher, and there are repeated references to requirements for a trencher. At present, the chief method of burying subsea pipe is jetting, and the chief method of burying submarine cables is plowing neither method requires a machine that would properly be described as a trencher. It might be advisable to say whether the requirement is for a burial system, a trencher, or some sort of combination. Author
