Hovercraft over different surfaces
|Hovercraft over different surfaces|
Commercial companies use hovercraft to detect unexploded bombs and ordnance in areas affected by war that need to be developed for installation of gas/oil pipelines.
Hovercraft allow users to reach tidal sand and mud areas to farm shell fish such as clams, cockles and mussels.
Bridge installation and repair companies use hovercraft to act as safety boats - boats are pretty useless on mud.
Rescue organisations use hovercraft to reach victims stuck in mud, or who have fallen through thin ice - every year, dog walkers and ice fishermen succumb to hypothermia and drowning since rescue boats are useless over ice. Mud victims need release from suction using an air lance. Our HDPE hovercraft are unique, manufactured from durable and buoyant HDPE, far stronger than glass fibre hoivercraft.
Hovercraft are also useful in flooding emergencies, since they have no propeller to get snagged on underwater obstacles, floating debris etc.
