SHALLOW WATER TRENCHER

LOW COST CABLE BURIAL SOLUTION FOR SHALLOW WATER APPLICATIONS

The SWT draws on SMD’s experience of remotely operated track driven vehicles, seabed trenching and submarine cable handling to provide an adaptable shallow water burial solution in sand, silt and clays.
The modular design of the SWT allows it to be configured to work on and from the beach, within the intertidal zone and in deeper waters around turbine interfaces. This versatility gives the installer an end to end burial solution for submarine power and telecommunication cables
