Providing complete rig designs including ancillary equipment and buildings. From tele-doubles on step down substructures to hydraulically raised triples on swing up substructures, we have experience designing and providing excellent fabrication drawings.
From API consulting services that include design binders and third party design reviews to CWB retained welding engineer and welding procedures, we have a wide range of experience. We also have extensive experience with structural finite element analysis using both linear, and non-linear analysis, as well as using hybrid models making use of beam and shell elements to provide additional insight into how a structure behaves. We also perform failure analysis, as well as accident investigations and fire and explosion investigations.
Shop / Field / Operations Support
Some additional special services that we provide include equipment ratings and design reviews of specialized trailers. We also design various pieces of lifting equipment and spreader bars, and perform lift studies including animations of the actual lift to ensure proper range of movement and verification of operating envelopes.
We provide engineering support for shop operations, calculating ratings for custom fabricated equipment, stands, and lifting devices. If no operating manuals or instructions are available, we can assist in creating the necessary documents to meet Occupational Health and Safety requirements. We also provide field support in examining and determining the extent of damage from an incident, and providing repair procedures, including welding procedures, and following up with a repair certification. For operations, sometimes there is a need to move equipment or make modifications to existing structures, and we can help with those procedures and provide the required paperwork.
We have extensive experience with equipment upgrades and modifications in both machining and fabrication, which translates into upgrades that can be easily incorporated into existing designs.
We can measure and analyze the equipment to determine what has to be reinforced or replaced to meet Code requirements. We will provide a concise and complete set of fabrication and installation drawings.
We will perform an inspection of the modifications and issue a certification for the equipment at the upgraded capacity.
With backgrounds ranging from textiles lasercutters to ultralights to steel building connections to computer mass storage devices, we have a wide background of problem solving. If you have had a challenge that you have not yet overcome and need some engineering and fabrication assistance, we may be able to help.
