International Dredging Review

A year ago, James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) launched its new jetting system and has since completed 12 contracts.

The high velocity jet increases the soil-cutting abilities of JFSE’s excavators by using central jets instead of the standard side positioned jets making it easier to cut through hard soils. The system provides time and cost savings on projects, which could not previously have been completed by traditional Controlled Flow Excavation (CFE) methods.

The global subsea excavation specialist, part of James Fisher & Sons plc, designed and developed the jetting system in response to client demand. Since its introduction it has been fitted on CFE tools stationed at strategic hubs in the UK, UAE, Singapore, Venezuela, USA, Brazil, China and Mexico.

JFSE holds exclusive worldwide rights to the central jetting system. The dozen projects that have used JFSE’s jetting system, on either its SP6000 or Twin R2000 tools, range from contracts in the UK to the Middle East, Indonesia and China.
