Flood pumps

Canadian Geographic - - DISCOVERY INFOGRAPHIC -

Big Ice, a flood pump com­pany in Saskatchewan, has de­vel­oped auger, pump and spray tech­nolo­gies to ef­fi­ciently thicken ice roads in re­mote ar­eas. A por­ta­ble pump re­leas­ing a vol­ume of 300,000 litres of wa­ter per hour can in­crease the thick­ness of an ap­prox­i­mately one-kilo­me­tre by 20-me­tre sec­tion of ice road by up to 15 cen­time­tres per day.
