Design and build of transport cradles and frames

During transportation, cargo can experience onerous loads from vessel motions. As such, it is imperative to support the cargo and transfer these loads into the grillage or vessel effectively. This can be achieved by way of bespoke transportation jigs and frames. Our extensive experience in the operational role, combined with structural design expertise allows design and build of fit for purpose transportation frames for all manner of cargo: from pipe reels to warships.

Our engineers are here to design to whichever design code or class society you require, using the appropriate methods, whether it be first principle calculations or finite element analysis. Our design process is supported by our first-class quality management system under DNVGL-ISO 9001:2015
