Our engineers are experienced in designing steel structures for the use at sea and ashore. Our projects cover floating objects such as ships and pontoons, but also land-based objects such as buildings and storage tanks. With our knowledge we design the ‘bones’ and load bearing elements of your project. We analyse deformation, buckling, stress and fatigue and create the reliable basis for you to build on. We run finite element analysis software FEMAP and NX Nastran to calculate the strength and assess the structural integrity.
As a member of the ‘Koninklijke Metaalunie’ we are your one stop shop for engineering and manufacturing. We manufacture structures and equipment in our production facility. The maximum lifting capacity is 10 tonnes. We are able to machine metal and have modern MIG/MAG welding machines. Examples of previous projects are all kinds of foundations, A-frames, platforms & stairs, seafastening brackets, WID nozzles , lifting tools, mooring rope reels, 20/40ft container modifications and more. Our workshop has a valuable interaction with our engineering department. Optimization of designs is an ongoing process. Vuicon delivers top quality, short delivery times and service against fair cost.
