Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a system and method to install an object, such as an anchor, foundation or suction pile, into the sub sea bottom. A suction pile and a combination of dredging action and suction pressure during installation are applied. The dredging action is provided by a liquid stream to erode the seabed to remove soil from below the object. Dredging at different levels is feasible. Dredging and suction are applied simultaneously or separately. In an embodiment soil removed during dredging is dumped onto said object.
