TAUNTON CANAL, SOMERSET - AQUATIC WEED HARVESTING
On this project we were appointed by a dredging contractor to carry out emergency aquatic weed harvesting works to help stabilise a 15 mile section of the Taunton canal, following summer flooding and subsequent landslides.
We worked in conjunction with another aquatic weed specialist who operated a Truxor cutting workboat. This boat only dealt with collection of cut weed as it was unable to cut to the depths required. However as our Conver workboat can easily cut to depths of up to 15 feet, we successfully cut bottom weed and in addition, removed much of the root system. Using the front end loader, we then collected and removed the weed from the water to restore it to original state.
Delivering excellent manoeuvrability in all conditions and incorporating a choice of weed cutting and weed removal attachments including trailing knives, t-cutter bar and weed rakes.
Our versatile, efficient workboats provide the ideal method for the removal of debris, floating and submerged pond weeds in lakes, canals and watercourses throughout the UK.
