Enser was tasked with the engineering, design and build including FE Analysis reports validating performance for safe functional operation, overhead lifting, and transportation.
35 Ton Rotor Transport Skid
This transport skid was designed and then validated for performance of safe functional operation, overhead lifting, and transportation. Lifting performance included lifting an entire transport skid and rotor system. Lift testing of the unit was completed in its operating conditions at 125% capacity.
Validation Criteria for Acceptable Overhead Lifting Performance while loaded: Compliance to ASME BTH-1, 2008
Validation Criteria for Acceptable Transportation Performance: Compliance to conditions defined by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Cargo Securement Rules:
- 0.8 g negative acceleration in the forward direction
- 0.5 g acceleration in the rearward direction
- 0.5 g acceleration in a lateral direction
- 0.5 g acceleration in the vertical upward direction
Enser completed the task in 16 weeks and the skid is performing as required.
