Submarine Plough Systems

As vessels become increasing reliant on underwater deployment solutions, there became a need to adapt the technology to work with the tried and tested plough (CQR) style anchor. 

In 2015 Bowmaster went to work to combine the old with the new. The functionality of the system is designed to be as simple as possible, with no additional lifting devices like hydraulics or pneumatics, gravity and windless power drive the entire system. This has resulted in a very crew friendly deployment system which requires only precautionary supervision during retrieval.
