We can provide expert advice on the design and integration of bulk material handling systems with specialism in the design of large and complex machinery.
With 20 years of experience in the tunnelling industry our engineers have worked across a wide variety of projects. We have designed bespoke machinery including back-up equipment for the Channel Tunnel, through to shaft excavators and novel segment manipulators. A further area of expertise is in the design of horizontal directional drilling rigs for the installation of pipes and cables with drilling lengths up to 1.9km between two islands and pipe diameters from 100 to 900mm.
We also have considerable experience in the design of bulk material handling systems, principally gained from coal handling, stacking and reclaiming plant allied to the power industry. We can produce plant layout and detailed layout/manufacturing drawings for conveyors and structures, GTUs and drives, chutework and hoppers, support bridge and trestle structures and transfer towers.
We can advise on all aspects of material handling equipment including machine selection and specification, technical investigations and safety. Our experience of drilling through a variety of materials means we are able to recommend practical, economic and effective solutions. We provide continued support to our clients through the life of their projects, from initial concepts and designs, through to site supervision, installation and fault analysis.
