Specialised Engineering Support For The Port Sector From Ainscough Industrial

Port engineering projects require expertise and careful management at all times. At Ainscough Industrial we specialise in complex projects both onshore and offshore.

With our team of highly trained engineers, we are able to utilise our skills and knowledge to undertake many complex projects involving major modifications to ship to shore cranes and dockside cranes.

We recently designed, developed and installed a modular reefer platform system for DP World Southampton.

A custom solution needed to be designed to allow the port operator access to the refrigeration units. The modular system has been designed to be shipped within 40ft containers, as per the clients specifications.

As well as custom portside solutions we are able to repair cranes with minimal disruption to the running of the port. Our engineers completed a contract with Associated British Ports to replace a slew bearing on a Sothert & Pitt DD2 crane at the docks in Ipswich.

The project was completed within 10 days of arriving on site and the port manager commented on how pleased he was with the results.

We are pleased to offer a complete turnkey solution designed with our port customers in mind. For example, our Seward Wyon engineers will travel anywhere at short notice to assess damage to cranes and equipment for insurance purposes. We are capable of designing and fabricating a solution for almost any need.
