Triton Logging Inc., based in Sannichton, BC is a world class underwater harvesting specialist that did its development testing in Lois Lake circa 2003. It operates globally, with no current north american operations due to market pricing.

Sawfish: a tethered, electric-over-hydraulic, remote-operated vehicle that’s the size of a minivan, with a 55 in. chainsaw to harvest trees 328 ft. below the surface. Because waterlogged wood does not float, the Sawfish attaches and inflates air bags that lift the cut logs to the surface for collection.

SHARC: a barge-based harvester for shallow depths.   Learn more at  http://www.tritonlogging.com/ or watch the Youtube video below.

 ...from the Peak article in 2010:   "Powell River is Triton’s operations and technology development centre, said Hayhurst. The company mostly uses Lois Lake as a testing area, he added, and it remains important to Triton because it is such an accessible reservoir. “Most of our activities this coming year will be focused on Ghana, but we’ll continue to develop and test our equipment in Powell River.” Triton has a barge near Lois Lake Dam.

 D&D Logging


 Prior to their involvement with D & D, Rothwell and Randle were both working at A Byrne Trucking, owned by Rothwell’s father-in-law, Andy Byrne. The three men—Rothwell, Rangle and Byrne—bought D & D in 1988. 

2005 “With the work we do, we fall, we process, we dryland sort, we boom, we build everything,” says Rothwell. “We’re a small company, but we’ve got enough equipment to do all that we need to do.” Today, the D & D equipment line-up includes a Madill 122 grapple yarder, two Cat front end loaders, a 4300 Link-Belt log loader, four excavators (two 3400 Link-Belts, a 290 Link-Belt and a John Deere 2554), and a Link-Belt 3400 High Walker with a 750 LogMax processor in addition to the new Madill/LogMax combo, and a variety of low bed and gravel truck equipment.
