Complete range of towed burial systems

SMD's towed systems are designed to bury subsea telecommunication and power cables up to 350mm diameter and pipelines up to 1500mm diameter. Available systems include the multi-depth plough (MD3), heavy duty plough (HD3) and multi-pass plough (MP) systems, supplied with tow load capability of 80Te, 120Te, 150Te, 250Te and 350Te. SMD smart ploughs (MD3, HD3 and UD4) all have powered steering and variable depth control to maximise cable protection. All smart ploughs have optional jetting to transform progress rates in dense sands.

  • Tow loads ranging from 80 to 350Te
  • Operating depths up to 1000m
  • Variable depth control to maximise cable protection
  • Optional jetting to increase track speed in sands
  • 350-1500mm pipe and cable burial possible
