At VIRO the analysis, calculation, design, and development of heavy and complex steel structures are in our DNA.
For many years, construction and architecture (structural design) and engineering analysis have stood out as two major disciplines at our organisation. Each one reinforces the other in our heavy equipment design department, which designs heavy steel structures for a variety of markets and applications. Take for example cranes on offshore vessels and platforms, moveable bridges, heavy hoists and lifting tools for the wind industry, Ferris wheels and roller coasters, and heavy sluices and their components.
Heavy structures are used in environments that place high demands on safety, reliability, and durability. We turn these and other requirements into sound and functional designs. If required, we can also include mechanical design as well as electrical engineering. The key principles are that your result complies with all requirements and KPIs, and it is practical and efficient to implement in the application environment.
Ideally, we will be involved in the design of your heavy equipment right from the initiation phase. We can assist you with feasibility studies, design from concept to detail, analyses (fatigue calculations, multibody dynamics, CFD, etc.), simulations, and guidance during their implementation. Besides examining the initial objectives, efforts, and costs, we also take a critical look at the risks, opportunities, tasks, and costs during the management and maintenance phases. We will provide you with a reliable solution that strikes the perfect balance between price and performance.
We have cooperated pleasantly with VIRO on several projects. One of their specialties is the analysis of complex test systems in aerospace. Their added value in this area is very important to us. In other respects you also notice that you work with a reliable and competent partner. For us it is certain that when the opportunity arises we choose VIRO again.
