In 2008 ASSO designed and built 'AssoJet II' to replace ‘AssoTrencher VI’ successful jetting vehicle. Its innovative design allowed the vehicle to operate in a greater range of territories and conditions.
Major improvements on the vehicle include its low weight-to-power ratio to increase its ability to work in no-stable soils, its lightweight composite caterpillars (enabling operation in uneven terrains) and its new jetting sword system. The latter is a proven and effective burial tool which utilizes two sets of stingers (Fore & Aft) providing greater cable burial depths and higher operational speeds.
Control and monitoring equipment are installed in a compact control cabin, while power supply of the vehicle can be achieved by onboard or outboard methods depending on the project needs. User friendly interfaces are installed, and data and video surveillance can be recorded in real time.
