Our safest cable handling plough for lead lined cables and cable bundles

The New HD3 Plough brings a host of added benefits to our proven HD3 design, without sacrificing existing capabilities.
The new simple design provides our high performance trenching solution for larger, heavier, lead lined cables, flexible umbilicals and cable bundles.
The updated design equips the plough with top loading capability for safer cable handling, alongside bottom loading for post lay burial.
Our proven plough design minimises pull force requirements and provides effective trenching capability. The subsea loading system allows post lay burial, while new drawbar design enables simultaneous burial with no cable handling.
