Traction Control Access Mat Solution

__
Paradox successfully designed, built and implemented a unique, custom access mat solution for the client who previously faced major safety, reliability and access concerns. Since then, we’ve provided multiple similar custom matting solutions for different clients.
CORE CONCERNS: 

Safety, Reliability, All-Season Accessibility

APPLICATION:

Access Road

CONDITIONS:

Steep and Muddy Slope

LOCATION:

Northern Alberta | August 2023

PROJECT OVERVIEW

___
Paradox collaborated with a top oil and gas client to solve particularly challenging issues they were facing. They were
unable to reliably access a water source for drilling and
completion operations. Together, we created a custom
solution, a never-seen-before Access Mat Solutions designed
to build a safe and dependable all season access road.

THE MISSION

___
To construct a safe, reliable, resilient
access road that can accommodate
3 types of vehicles all year round.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

___
As unique as the problem was, so was
the solution. With all hands-on deck, the
process from initital consultation to
implementation took a total of 10 days.

THE PROBLEM

___
An extremely steep slope was hindering the ability of trucks, quads and loaders to reach a crucial water source. Access was treacherous and there was a high risk of incidents occurring. As safety was a top priority and nonnegotiable, the client wasn’t willing to compromise on it.

In the past, the client had tried conventional solutions such as traditional access matting without success. With frequent plant shutdowns due to incidents and inaccessibility, the client was losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue.

 

 

To mitigate future losses for our client, Paradox assembled its multi-faceted team of engineers, project managers, procurement specialists, and product experts. They worked to understand the challenges and to develop an agileand responsive solution.
