The Q‐Trencher 500 ROV provides high power trenching capability for the burial of cables up to 3m deep. The ROV uses variable high flow or high pressure jetting to optimise the trenching to suit the conditions. It can also deploy a rear eductor to enhance burial of large diameter product. Using a forward jet tool it can manoeuvre to bury tight loops. Its high thrust enables rapid post lay survey. It can also be fitted with a suite of tools for maintenance operations. SMD offer a turnkey, integrated solution including SMD designed high sea state LARS and umbilical system.
