SEAJET Systems inks manufacturing partnership with SMD for subsea excavation and trenching technology

Dubai, UAE, 11 August 2021: SEAJET Systems (SJS), a build to order controlled flow excavation (CFE) solutions provider, has signed a manufacturing partnership with Soil Machine Dynamics (SMD), the world’s largest independent designer and manufacturer of specialist subsea intervention equipment.

The partnership will see SMD exclusively build, test and commission the most advanced fleet of CFE equipment available in the market in its fully fitted production facility in Wallsend, Newcastle upon Tyne.  The agreement follows SJS’s launch in May 2021, where it offered the offshore energy industry the ability to own and operate CFE technology for the first time, from a team of leading subsea excavation and trenching industry experts.

Faisel Chaudry, Managing Director at SJS said: “We are delighted to partner with SMD because of its renowned reputation for world leading innovation and quality in the subsea trenching industry. Following our launch, we’ve seen significant interest in our solutions that have been honed over 25 years and now together with SMD, we offer a real step change in CFE provision to our global client base. This major milestone also provides us with the opportunity to think about what’s next – by continually pushing the boundaries in CFE tooling development and working with SMD’s engineering team to deliver cutting edge solutions that combine the expertise of both companies. We’re excited for the future.”

Developed by optimising existing CFE technology, SJS introduces advanced hydrodynamic properties suitable for a wide range of applications and variable seabed conditions. SJS offers a tailored aftermarket support package to inspire client confidence to own, operate and maintain their own-in-house CFE equipment.

Paul Davison, Deputy CEO at SMD adds: “CFE offers a range of opportunities in offshore wind oil and gas markets alongside our existing solutions.  The SJS team know the technology and the market, and with our 50 years of experience, we bring build quality and after-care reassurance. Our complimentary teams and experience form a strong partnership which we in turn can offer to our clients.  We look forward to developing the technology and service with the SJS team”.
