Industrial & energy-producing structures
As a specialist of structural systems and ground engineering, we provide bespoke solutions combining design and methods, in-house systems and project execution for the construction of industrial and energy-producing structures worldwide.
As specialists of structural components, we specialise in the repair or replacement of parts of an asset that are essential to guarantee continued safe use. The repair or replacement of parts of an asset due to structural deterioration is essential to maintain or reinstate it in a condition that guarantees continued safe use. As specialists of structural components, VSL helps owners and asset managers to define a tailored-made solution balancing cost, safety, continuity of service, performance and durability.
We offer structural modification solutions to accommodate new uses or requirements that help maintain a structure’s value, comply with the latest design codes and safety recommendations or answer to new needs.
Heavy lifting provides an alternative to the standard in-situ, crane lifting or sliding methods; it helps to overcome challenges related to:
Weight: When the elements are too heavy for standard methods
Access: When geometrical constraints are too challenging for a standard approach
Time: When the construction needs to be completed within a short time period.
Heavy lifting technology relies on highly-controlled operations which reduce exposure of personnel to construction risks. This method also allows for better product quality as well as better and safer working conditions.
