Offshore staff

GDANSK, Poland – Protea has delivered a trencher handling system to Canyon Offshore Ltd. Designed to allow the safe launch and recovery of Canyon’s latest trencher, the T1500, the 35-ton safe working load (SWL) launch and recovery system was recently mobilized on the Maersk Responder and is now operational in the North Sea.

“We worked closely with the Canyon Offshore project team to develop a system that was tailored to their precise requirements and incorporated the key features they had specified based on many years of operating subsea trenchers – including the ability to launch and recover T1500 in high sea states, rapid mobilization and demobilization on a range of support vessels and ease of operation and maintenance,” said Tomasz Paszkiewicz, CEO of Protea.

The turnkey handling system was designed and manufactured at Protea’s modern production facility in Southern Poland and completed an extensive test program before being shipped to the UK.

Following shipment to Roysth, Scotland, a team of Protea’s service engineers assisted with the mobilization of the handling system on the Maersk Responder.
