Williston Transport
'Williston Transporter'

The icebreaker 'Williston Transporter' pioneered the use of a double acting reamer.  This idea was first developed by STXM in early 1988.  

The 'Williston Transporter' was built on the side of a lake using civil engineering techniques.  It incorporates 4 Z-drives for propulsion which are mounted in cans for vertical removal.  In this way, the drives can be maintained without the need for docking.
