Netherlands- headquartered N-Sea has completed an investment and upgrade program of its Renewables and Utilities Department.

The main focus of the upgrade is cable management and asset integrity. An experienced and dedicated management team have been installed to oversee this department, and they have completed an upgrade program of their tools and equipment to enhance their Controlled Flow Excavation (CFE) Capabilities.

N-Sea has a proven and respected record in CFE, with the company enjoying a long and successful track-record with the use of non-contact methods for burial, remedial works and cable repair. Coupled with their renowned survey and engineering capabilities, the asset puts the firm in a strong position when offering their clients turnkey solutions.

N-Sea Engineering Manager, Ruud Houtman commented “N-Sea have recently performed studies and tests which further demonstrates the capabilities of our Twin and Quad Prop tools. The results of our study can provide us and our clients the knowledge and confidence that our tools can perform in the environments required. We are also very fortunate to have Management and Operational personnel who have a depth of knowledge for the integrity of cable and the performance of remedial burial, corrective maintenance, and repair to subsea assets”.

Originally founded in 1933 as a shipping company with operations in the south-western part of the Netherlands, N-Sea has evolved to become a leading integrated subsea infrastructure services provider, offering a wide range of assurance and maintenance services to the renewable energy, oil and gas, and civil contracting communities.

The company supports customers operating their maritime infrastructure, such as windfarms, pipelines, cables, oil and gas platforms and their maritime civil infrastructure through survey, inspection and assessment of these assets. N-Sea also installs, inspects, repairs and maintains infrastructures throughout their entire lifecycle.
