Discovery Channel featuring SEM Ice Bridge on “Mighty Ships”


SEM has designed, constructed, and operates an ice bridge for Vale’s Nickel Mine in Northern Labrador.  The ice bridge is designed to safely transport Inuit hunters across the open water left behind by the Umiak 1.  The Umiak 1 is a bulk carrier used to transport Nickel concentrate from the Voisey Bay mine site to markets abroad.  The video below is a clip from the Mighty Ships episode (Umiak 1) featuring the ice bridge designed and operated by SEM.
