Preparing the construction of a bridge in agricultural/natural terrain over water. A swampy area beside a river had to be cleared of reeds and bushes before the end of February 2020.
Method: Twenty-seven square meters of Klosterbugten baywas searched for Pacific oysters as part of a research project.
Job: A swampy area beside a river had to be cleared of reeds and bushes before the end of February.
The date was fixed by The Nature Conservation Authority to ensure there were no breeding birds there at the time.
Access to the area was only possible on a narrow,soaked dam, and across a field with a soft surface, after weeks of rain.
The job was completed in one day with a Hitachi BF E15 using a tilt and rotating head, and a reeds grapple in combination with a Takeuchi and sorting grapple. The reeds and bush material were taken from the dam to a Takeuchi crawler dumper. By using the Hitachi BF E15, no steel plates were required, alleviating the need to setup in the evening prior to the job, or take down in the evening after the job.
The area was fully cleaned, and there were no serious environmental damages on the dam or in the agricultural areas.
