GLOBAL MARINE DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCES WITH THE AIR CUSHION VEHICLE. (ACT-100)

This paper describes the experiences of Global Marine Development Inc in the mobilisation and use of a 100-ton cargo capacity <ACT-100> hoverbarge. The demonstration tests were conducted at Prudhoe Bay during the period of April 1981 to June 1982. The tests have provided valuable performance information as well as an insight into the payload requirements to be considered while developing new and larger air cushion supported craft for the Arctic environment.
