The Deep C® Blower is superior to any other mass flow excavation tools in the market. It can be operated at any water depth and the special designed nozzle provides high removal capacity, avoids excessive fluidisation of seabed and provides visibility throughout the operation. Utilizing Deep C Blower in combination with Deep C engineered methods for operations, provides a highly efficient and controlled mass flow excavation.
