SMD Secures Another Boskalis Order

Soil Machine Dynamics (SMD) has signed a contract to supply a 200Te Multi-Mode Pre Lay Plough to marine service provider Boskalis.

Set for delivery in spring 2020, the Pre Lay Plough comes with SMD’s latest surface control equipment which will be mobilised on the bridge of a Boskalis specialist trenching vessel.

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.

Paul Davison, managing director of SMD’s Equipment Business, said: “We are delighted with this second award from Boskalis following the CBT2400 Trencher contract. We’ve worked hard with Boskalis to evolve the Multi-Mode Plough design, improve its performance and minimise environmental impact on the seabed. Minimising lay risk and maximising lay speed are key drivers and being able to carry out a campaign of trenching and backfilling using a single vehicle makes operations economical in both cost and time. We look forward to cementing a solid working relationship.”
