Capabilities - Ice Roads

AIC has developed the most efficient method of offshore ice road construction in the arctic today. We utilize our own invention — Snowbirds — to drill through sea ice and pump water to the surface of the ice road. The ice is built one layer at a time until it is thick enough to support the weight of what the road is designed for.

 

For onshore tundra ice roads we use a different technique of placing ice chips mixed with fresh water on the right of way. Reflective delineators are then installed to insure safety in a blizzard and to protect the tundra.

 

Our ice road development is environmentally sound as they melt in summer leaving no trace of exploration activity on the fragile tundra.
