In resource-based industries, access to remote locations and oilfields is often a key logistical hurdle. Drilling, mining, construction and other industrial activities rely on the availability of vital equipment and tools, which often need to be transported over unpredictable terrain to remote areas. Unstable or saturated ground can pose a great risk to the safety of workers and to the timeline of a project.
Typical solutions turn to the use of oak and fir access mats, swamp mats and rig mats. These mats are not only heavy and costly to transport and laborious to install, but they also suffer breakage, which can delay job progress due to repairs.
Nuna Innovations offers an alternative to the industry standard and offers an industry-leading solution at a competitive price-point.
