FLOATING A NEW IDEA - by Allan Janssen
08/30/2010

Logging companies that have valuable natural resources stranded far from normal transportation infrastructure should consider the potential of an innovative new “sixth mode” of transportation: airships.

That’s the recommendation of an international group of transportation engineers and researchers who say unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) like balloons and zeppelins could easily do what is impossible or too costly for pipelines, trucks, trains, airplanes, and boats.

Their report on forestry transport was presented at the Canadian Transportation Research Forum this spring by Dr. Barry Prentice, a professor at the University of Manitoba’s I.H. Asper School of Business, Transport Institute.

“Why not have motorized balloons fly from outpost camps to some service station where freight can connect up to road or rail network,” Prentice challenged his audience. “Airships could essentially provide the feeder routes for the logging industry where no other realistic alternative exists.”

CANADA BEST SUITED TO LAUNCH AIRSHIP INDUSTRY, PROF SAYS - by Allan Janssen

For almost 10 years now, Barry Prentice has been talking about the potential of airships to revolutionize freight transport in Canada.
...
“I sincerely believe that Canada needs transport airships. We need them badly,” he says. “It is very clear to me that natural resources is the future for Canada, as it has been our past. And most of those resources are inaccessible. There are rich deposits of minerals in the north that would have been mined out 50 years ago if they’d been accessible by roads. They’re still there and waiting to be developed.”

Yet the few airships that are seen floating above this land – or any land, actually – are used for less ambitious purposes such as atmospheric testing, exploration, advertising, or simple tourism.

“No one, anywhere, is using airships for freight transport. And that’s a real shame,” says Prentice, “because there are no technical barriers to building a 20-tonne freight airship. None. But just think of what it could do. And not just in Canada. We have a lot of remote space but so does Russia, so does the Amazon, so does the Congo, so does the Australian outback, so does Antarctica. There are lots of places where it can be used. If we develop an industry here, it won’t just be to serve the Canadian market, it can be an export market as well.”
