The main concern when working in fish habitat - is having as little impact as possible. With the Spider, we walk in the creek bed with swamp pads achieving ultra low ecological impact.
Watch as we re-enter the creek after re-fueling on dryland. The Spider can now get back to work with another 30 hours of fuel in its tanks.
CREEK BED REINFORCEMENT
This creek bed was undermined by water containing rubble during melting seasons and storms. The yearly issues threatened the adjacent properties. With the Spider, we literally crawled up the rocky creek and stabilized the bed with boulders.
This creek was accessible from the ocean only, which required the use of a barge. Some work on the estuary was completed directly from the barge.
The captain just loved the rubber tires of the Spider because they didn’t damage the wooden surface of the barge like large excavators do.
