Marine Structures

Well Engineered can design and supply custom steel structures to withstand harsh marine conditions.  See our Capabilities page for more details on design.

Trainyard Loading Ramp

W.Eng supplied the design for an 80,000 kg capacity loading ramp.  The ramp is 11 feet wide by 48 feet long with a load height of 42 inches.  In spite of its size, the ramp can be moved using a forklift.  It is suitable for either three or four wheeled vehicles, with a max capacity of 50,000 kg per axle, or 25,000 kg for any single wheel.  The ramp has features for use with rail cars.  

Galvanized Fire Escape Towers

W.Eng has supplied the design for a set of custom galvanized steel fire escapes for a local system of grain elevators.  The existing fire escapes were aged, weathered, and required a replacement to meet today's standards.

To suit different tower heights and access points, the fire escapes were designed to be modular, saving design time, material costs, and simplifying the installation process.  Due to a lack of suitable anchor points, the escapes were designed to be primarily freestanding with minimum lateral supports.

DNV Approved Portable Offshore Unit

W.Eng has been contracted to supply a DNV 2.7-3 approved Portable Offshore Unit (POU) to lift a vacuum skid onto a ship.  The POU has a mass of 1652 kg, and the total package with the vacuum equipment has a gross weight of 3690 kg.
