Heavy Movable Structures

Heavy movable structures are substantial engineering structures employing machinery in which the operational speed is relatively low and the critical forces are significant.  A movable bridge is one of the more unique and complex heavy movable structures.  Mechanical, Electrical and Hydraulics engineering expertise plays a major role in the successful operation of heavy movable structures. We can and have extended our expertise gained on movable bridges to successful results on other heavy movable structures.

Other heavy movable structures include:

  • Hoists, Cranes, Ship Loaders
  • Dam Gates and Locks
  • Ferry Terminals
  • Transfer Bridges
  • Aerial Ladders/Elevating Platforms
  • Tunnel Ventilation Systems
  • Special Structures
