EWK Amphibious barge - M2d
WHAT IS A M2D? In the water, the M2D is powered by three propellers at up to 8 knots. The central propeller rotates 360 degrees thereby also acting as it’s rudder and providing incredible manoeuvrability. With its pontoons unfolded the M2B can carry an MCA coded payload of an incredible 10.2 tons on water or land. The completely flat deck area provided with the pontoons unfolded measures a staggering 6m x 6m. It also carries its own ramps which allow vehicles (including military tanks!) to drive on and be ferried across a river or flood zone. The ramps can also be configured to allow vehicles to drive over it, thereby forming a temporary bridge for two way traffic. If all 8 ramps are deployed the clear deck spacebecomes a staggering 6m x 16m. Each M2B machine can be interlocked to form a longer bridge or clever "moon pool" in the middle. Two connected together can carry approx. 30 tons. Via it’s skipper and driver, the M2B can transition from water to rough terrain or road travel instantaneously with it’s side pontoons folded or unfolded. The wheels fully retract into the body (hull) for water travel and in “all terrain” mode, the M2 has a high ground clearance of 0.8m and can climb slopes of up to 31 degrees. APPLICATIONS These amphibious vehicles/ ferries/ bridging systems have already been put into good use in the following commercial environments: Leadership development & teamwork training courses Flood damage, sea defence & rescue work, Ferry for vehicles, plant, equipment, animals & people A great alternative to a multicat, floating platform or self propelled barge Temporary bridge Rescue craft Dry & portable site for portakabins, stores, etc. Cable laying Salvage work Bridge inspection, repair with cherry picker, access platformor scaffolding Jetty inspection, repair, removal of bracings with hiab crane and cherry picker fitted Jetty touch up painting with cherry picker Dredging Dive platform Drilling Platform Load carrying of i.e. Sandbags, rock, stone, etc. In areas which require an instant transition from land to water travel and vice-versa. Shallow water, firm ground, sand & all tides work capability. “Returning to Port” can be as simple as driving up the beach/ river bank or slip-way each day.
