High-tech equipment protects marshes during power-line construction | savannahnow.com

Some of this area’s salt marshes are being well protected despite the construction of a high-voltage power line that will run from the Tradepoint Industrial Park in Liberty County to the Burnt Church Substation off Ga. 144 in Bryan County.

By land, workers are able to operate in the salt marshes without damaging them with the use of Hydratek multi-purpose vehicles.

The crew and equipment carriers produce low ground pressure by operating on treads when the earth is firm underneath. They are also propeller driven for use in water-covered areas.
