TerraLam® mats can simplify access to remote powerline sites, even in muddy, icy, or other difficult conditions, while protecting the ground from environmental damage.
When building and maintaining the power distribution network requires cranes and other heavy equipment that can compact soil and damage the ground in other ways, Sterling’s heavy-duty mats are designed to withstand the weight, saving restoration costs.
Sterling can build temporary water crossings and roads that provide safe, stable crossings to get crews and equipment to the job site.
Power lines often run through farm lands meaning poorly planned access roads can cause significant crop loss and soil compaction. TerraLam® mats will reduce ground disturbance, while Sterling optimizes access routes to reduce restoration costs and potential payouts.
