Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd has signed a contract to supply a 200Te Multi-Mode Pre Lay Plough to marine service provider Boskalis N.V.
Set for delivery in spring 2020, the Pre Lay Plough comes with SMD’s latest surface control equipment which will be mobilized on the bridge of a Boskalis specialist trenching vessel.
The Multi-Mode Pre Lay Plough is an established member of SMD’s power cable installation and protection product range and is available with configurations for trenching and backfill.
The plough will come equipped with a 2.1m share suitable for trenching in sands and hard clays up to 600kPa and has configurations for trenching and backfill.
The trenching pass creates an engineered ‘Y’ trench profile with a secure power cable pocket for subsequent lay process and the backfill pass moves the cut spoil back over the product for maximum cover.
