FAUN Trackway Successfully Completes Equipment Training at Army Bay in New Zealand

Training of the equipment was successfully completed by the 5th Movements Company Capability Branch at Army Bay, Whangaparaoa, where the deployment and recovery of the Trackway® was conducted in quick succession by a CAT 938K Material Handling Equipment, and modified by Gough Cat.

Purchased as part of the Capability Branch’s Logistics over the Shore (LOTS) project to facilitate the transfer of personnel, equipment and material from ship to shore and beyond, the Medium Ground Mobility System enables vehicles to navigate through challenging terrain by stabilising the ground conditions and allowing for a temporary and portable aluminium route.

Comprising of FAUN Trackway®’s M30H Trackway® solution which is coiled onto a Spool; the Trackway® is deployed and recovered by their Medium Beam Dispenser which attaches to the CAT 938K. In under six minutes, up to 40m of M30H Trackway® can be deployed, with additional matting joined quickly and effectively to create a longer route or turning area; this is simply carried out by unloading the empty Spool and loading a second.
