WHAT WE DO

MODULE TRANSPORT SOLUTIONS

Our modular/preassembly strategies assist cost efficiency and optimisation

Westlink has been involved in transportation of modules and preassemblies for nearly thirty (30) years delivering to projects across the globe from domestic and international fabrication yards. From huge material handling plant fabrications used in construction of iron ore mine processing facilities, to Pre Assembled Racks (PARs) that support pipe to build LNG trains, to Pre Assembled Units (PAUs) for chemical process in petrochemical plants and precast sections for major infrastructure upgrades – Westlink understands how to deliver these heavy oversized fabrications.

The modular approach can present the following advantages to your project when supported by robust engineered logistics:

 OVERALL COST REDUCTION

 OVERALL SCHEDULE REDUCTION

REDUCED ONSITE ACTIVITY RISK

CONTROLLED FACTORY ENVIRONMENTS

CONCURRENT FABRICATION SCHEDULES

Additional drivers for your projects to modularise may include:

CONSTRUCTION SITE REMOTENESS

LOCAL FABRICATION LIMITATIONS

CONSTRUCTION SITE WEATHER CONSTRAINTS

AGGRESSIVE PROJECT TARGETS

PLOT PLAN AND LAYDOWN RESTRICTIONS

Westlink’s early involvement in modular/preassembly strategies can help Customers win work through savings and optimisation and minimise risk of overrun during execution.

Many major project learnings that adopt modularisation strategies reflect that logistics input into early design phases as critical to optimise degree of modularisation and constructability. Our teams work with our Customers in the front end of project feasibility and design to help determine whether a modular or stick built strategy is optimal and how to best execute either strategy’s required logistics. More specifically, the Westlink team offers the following experience, expertise and value adding services to support modular and preassembly construction strategies to minimise cost, schedule and risk:
