The backfill plough (BP) is designed for compatibility with the VMP trenching plough to cover rigid pipes or flexible umbilicals in the oil and gas industry. SMD has supplied pipeline ploughs for over 35 years to various customers and projects. The BP incorporates design features to allow it to operate on very soft soils without significant sinkage including large support skids and minimum weight.
As with any of our assets, SMD can provide a turnkey burial solution including in-house designed high sea state LARS, tow winch and umbilical system. Our backfill ploughs are manufactured to order, we work in partnership with our customers to accommodate their ploughing needs.
