Access & Lifting Equipment
The Kessock Bridge across the Beauly Firth in the Scottish Highlands is a 1,056m cable-stayed bridge with a 240m main span. The bridge was completed in 1982 and equipped with a moving access gantry suspended beneath the deck. The bridge operator, BEAR Scotland, identified that the access gantry was reaching the end of its safe working life and commissioned the design for a replacement gantry. Recent developments in gantry standards meant that the old design could not be replicated, necessitating a bespoke new structure.
Replacing the conductors between electricity pylons carries many risks, particularly when the transmission lines cross a road or railway. Traditionally, scaffolding structures are erected over the route to protect it in the event that one of the conductors breaks as the new cable is pulled in. This is costly and time consuming.
The project involved the design verification of the high level and truss level access platforms for the Tamar Hanger replacement.
Eadon Consulting, in collaboration with The Spencer Group, designed 14 aluminium access platforms for the Forth Road Bridge. The platforms were designed in aluminium to minimise weight making their handling on site during installation easier and safer.
Seadrift Precision Engineering supply and support a wide range Offshore and Sub sea equipment. One of their main products are ROV deployment systems mounted on board ship decks. These are hydraulically operated, extending boom A frames that are able to lift the ROV directly from an integral skid base into the water.
Eadon Consulting were employed by Manthorpe Engineering to develop a concept and detailed design for a new piece of equipment for EADS Astrium. Astrium needed a platform to help move satellites around a clean room environment during their...
