Following announcement of our 300th contract win in December last year Ardmore Craig are pleased to be able to announce the recent successful installation of a fender frame design by our client IN-SPEC Manufacturing at a facility on the river Tees.
The fender frame design and lifting tool were developed by the Ardmore Craig team in tandem with IN-SPEC and resulted in an adaptable system to allow the lowering, support and installation of a fender frame within tight timescales due to raising tides.
Following a detailed site survey by IN-SPEC, a concept design for the fender frame and an associated lifting device were provided to the Ardmore Craig team which was then subjected to structural analysis and calculations in order to verify its strength in both the installed orientation and during a range of complex lifting positions allowing the system to safely be picked up from the quayside, rotated 90 degrees and lowered into position on pre-installed support fabrications.
Our Director, Andy Stevenson, commented that the “project saw both companies working closely to develop the design and the installation plans” while IN-SPEC Director Tony Wild added that “the survey work and detailed planning led to the safe and efficient installation of the fender frames”.
You can see several images of the frame, support and installation in the images below.
