This beach management project comprises of a linear site which is 20 miles long and has a limited number of access points that come from narrow lanes, so from a logistics point of view it makes sense for the plant and equipment to remain on the beach.
However, not all of it can be mounted on tracks or tyres suitable for a sandy environment.
To compensate for this, a number of bespoke steel sledges were constructed, and these support welfare cabins, refuelling facilities, lighting towers, compressors and boats.
These sledges can easily be dragged along the beach by a bulldozer to where they are needed without getting bogged down in the sand.
