Inland Marine Technologies’ principals, having worked on inland waterways and as well as oceans on Canada’s East and West coasts, discerned a need for specialization with inland waterways. Much of our country is covered with lakes and rivers. These inland water bodies are often challenging environments. Depths, flows, proximity to structures and impact on populations are all critical. The skill, expertise, and equipment needed are different than on coastal waters. It is important to ensure an experienced service provider is readily available inland, rather than contractors imported from coastal jurisdictions, at great expense.
Not only do we possess the training and knowledge required, but we also possess valuable local knowledge. We are also far more cost-effective. We need only the equipment required for inland waterways, not open-ocean work. Deployment costs are significantly less for a regionally based company. Inland Marine Technologies has proven these assumptions with the successful completion of many projects across western Canada.
