Research and development

Research and development to find the solution for concrete challenges across the full breadth of the market. This may include investigations about soil properties, the cutting properties of rock, horizontal and vertical pumping processes, and the suction properties of cutter and suction heads. In the offshore area, reduced cycle time of pipelay systems, optimum power system configurations, motion reduction and compensation, increased fatigue lifetime and workability analysis are currently the subject of ongoing research programmes.
