The system in question uses a hydraulic cylinder to ensure that large vessels, such as mammoth tankers, move less and remain up against the quay, despite being subjected to waves, ebb and flood or the hydrodynamic forces induced by passing ships. We were commissioned to manufacture and deliver all the requisite plate work for this unique system.

This client now needs a tank in which to test the system to make sure that it works and doesn’t leak. Forces up to 300 tonnes will be exerted on the machine in this testing tank. We designed this special tank together with the client and are currently building it.
