Tundra Transport in the Arctic
Anywhere you need it. Any season of the year.
Cruz Construction has years of experience in all types of heavy construction projects in remote Alaskan locations.
Our oil and gas fleet of tundra-approved vehicles brings a new dimension to exploration on the North Slope. This new equipment places Cruz among the most versatile and capable contractors in Alaska.
Our crews have decades of experience supporting resource development projects all across Alaska, and the right equipment and skilled manpower to take on any task.
With our tundra-approved vehicles, we can haul fuel, freight, and drill rigs and related materials or anything else your project requires.
Our experienced team uses modern equipment to get rigs moved and rigged up as efficiently as possible.
Cruz Construction’s on-site personnel have over 100 years combined experience in this highly specialized area. Supervisors, many of whom have been moving drilling rigs in Alaska for over 30 years, make sure the job is done safely and quickly, as well as train our next generation of experts.
With our fleet of rig moving equipment, including two of the largest oil field bed trucks in Alaska, we can transport the subbase and other large rig components as single pieces to save our clients work days and money.
Ice Roads: Highways on the Tundra
Few companies in Alaska have the dedication to succeed in this challenging area of construction. By utilizing new and innovative building techniques, we are able to get a head start on projects with a short construction season. We know the importance of a timely start up for our clients. In addition to specialized equipment, we also maintain a fleet of low ground pressure vehicles, which minimizes disturbance to the fragile environment while allowing construction activities to commence.
Cruz Construction Inc. has the experience and equipment to construct ice roads in isolated locations. Virtually all of the company’s equipment, including low ground pressure vehicles, is air-transportable via C-130 Hercules (Herc) aircraft. The equipment can be assembled and staged at an airstrip in the vicinity of the drill site location, ready to mobilize once tundra permits are issued. Then construction of ice roads, pads and airstrips can be accomplished quickly and efficiently.
We have the capabilities to move rigs, build ice roads and pads, and support an entire drilling operation from hauling fuel and drilling mud to de-mob and site cleanup.
Innovation and a hands-on management style makes Cruz Construction what it is today; a company able to successfully complete challenging projects, in seemingly impossible situations, on time and on budget for our clients. In fact, most of our business is from repeat customers.
Our roster of heavy civil projects includes:
- Roads and pads
- Mine reclamation
- Erosion control
- Communications and power lines
