Each component of the machines is designed to cause the least possible disturbance to the fauna and flora surrounding the work sites. As an example, the propulsion system reduces vibrations and can be adjusted by a hydraulic pitch system for shallow water. All hydraulic oils used in the mechanical systems are vegetable-based and biodegradable to prevent contamination due to potential leaks. In addition to participating in day-to-day environmental operations, Amphibexes are manufactured in a low carbon environment and trees are planted every year to offset the environmental footprint of their manufacture.
