Early reports indicate that the craft is proving a success with inland sites in the Thames and Midlands areas where marine growth has posed a recurrent problem.
Njord 1 is a 5m Dutch-built Mobitrac Classic (Truxor-style equivalent) capable of fully amphibious operation, including manoeuvring on reed beds, marshes, tidal mudflats and river banks, even where water depths are negligible.
A one-man operation, Njord 1 is self-launching and is easily mobilised to remote sites by cost-effective road trailer.
