Machine control systems can add real benefit to a project in terms of safety and efficiency. In rail applications the Prolec system can provide safe working envelope control, with height and safe lift control also available. For marine works the system can be linked to GPS to give real time bucket position underwater, with a full size monitor detailing the underwater excavation or rock placement.
Recent jobs where these systems have been proved invaluable are:
- Outfall construction and rock armour works on Thames Tideway Project, London
- Removal of rock and dredging works for the extension of St Marys Harbour, Isles of Scilly
- Rock excavation and link span installation at St Helier Harbour, Jersey
