Truck Elevating Platforms and Loading Arms
Access Gangway, Carbisaustralia, Complete Terminals,
his project was awarded to Carbis Australia Group, LLC by Jacobs Engineering in Singapore.
JEL constructed the Greenfield site on Jurong Island. The bay is double sided and the tankers park on weighbridges. Huntsman has a wide variety of trailers visiting the bay for both loading and unloading. The object was to provide an access solution, which could meet all the tanker heights and allow them to park in the same place every time for weighing accuracy. An added complication was the need to load up to eight different liquids in each bay.
Carbis Australia proposed designing a dual sided elevating truck access system.
This is a vertically elevating platform with flip‐up floor panels that allows operators to walk freely and safely on top of the tanker anywhere along it’s length. Carbis Australia further proposed a dual sided manifold arrangement, which gave simple yet effective liquid selection to the operators. The manifold is positioned at a higher level than the access platform to allow adequate drainage down to the tanker.
