ETA have developed a highly successful range of jetting sleds for the burial of cables and pipelines. Extensive research and trials conducted by ETA have led to a design that optimises jetting efficiency resulting in minimum water pump requirements for a given burial depth and soil type.
ETA have provided sleds with surface water pumps for the shore approach sections and for operations in water depths of up to 25 m as well as sleds for deeper operations.
Jetting sleds with surface pumps have been used to 100 m with extended delivery hoses however for routine operations in water depths greater than 25 m subsea water pumps can also be incorporated into the sled design.
The jetting sleds are supplied with a user friendly control system which is based on an industry standard distributed I/O system. This system provides a high degree of flexibility and future expansion capability.
