All season access, using the Hoverbarge
Keeping operations running through the seasons.
The Hoverbarge is an alternative to relying upon the ice roads for supplies shipments. Operating at 1 psi ground pressure compared to a human footprint of 8 psi, the Hoverbarge minimises environmental impact to the fragile terrain. Whilst using a series of smaller towed Hoverbarges, the configuration can be adapted to a long train enabling the Hoverbarge to pass through existing clearings without the need to widen them further.
Each Hoverbarge unit can carry a payload of 50 tonnes, allowing 200 tonnes of supplies to be transported at a single time. The Hoverbarge is fully amphibious and will float when off hover, providing a safe transportation system for crew and goods.
Configuring the Hoverbarges as a square, enables heavy loads to be spread over the four Hoverbarges, so shipping of oversized equipment becomes possible.
