Mass Flow Excavator
The Mass Flow Excavator (MFE) was developed for non-contact dredging operations, providing an efficient method of clearing sediment from subsea structures without damaging the structures themselves.
Due to the large hydraulic flow requirement MFE’s are generally powered directly from the surface, the loss of hydraulic power in the hoses makes this very inefficient and not suitable for deeper water operations. The UT ROV eliminates this problem by providing hydraulic power for the MFE at scource.
