The Mac1 cable laying/pipe laying machine works using a hydraulic cutter and a puller slide advance system. A duct is dug measuring 0.5 meters diameter. The machine weighs 5,599 kg and measures: 6.90 X 4.86 x 3.10 lm.
- Cutter diameter: from 2.50 ml to 1.80 ml
- Maximum cable laying height: 3 m from the seabed
- Cable / conduit laying limit: 0.40 Ml from the seabed.
MAC 1, reducing material handling compared to traditional excavation and minimizing suspended particles, is particularly suitable in the event of cables / pipes dropping in sensitive and / or polluted environments. The system allows to carry out the phases of:
- opening of the trench
- cable / duct laying
- closure of the laying trench.
The control cabin (5.00 x 2.95 x 4.26 m) is positioned on a towing bar complete with console for managing the operating parameters. The GPS monitoring system allows continuous recording of the laying depth and the polygonal path.
