Bridges and linkspans
Our staff have an abundance of relevant engineering practice providing an unrivalled depth of knowledge in understanding the problems associated with heavy moving structures (including ro-ro linkspans).
Our hydraulic simulation software enables us to accurately verify designs. Our power systems modelling quickly determines energy needs to calculate through life energy costs and ways in which to recover energy. And with BIM-compliant 3D modelling we minimise risks: for example, a collision of parts or components.
All this, along with our own ISO 9000 backed process-driven culture, enables us to optimise the entire workflow to improve efficiencies and reduce costs - without sacrificing quality.
Our professional engineering consultancy services address the mechanical operation and electrical control of all the moving elements of a bridge or structure; from the core activity power system to locking pins, guard rails and barriers, as well as the static elements such as CCTV, control rooms, remote facilities, and architectural, signage, way-finding and marine directional lighting.
And, with the right ongoing maintenance - all to ensure the security of your asset, its environment, and the safety requirements of stakeholders - KGAL’s professionalism delivers one more essential benefit: your own peace of mind.The photo shows the award-winning Media City pedestrian swing bridge across the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford in North West England. KGAL provided the mechanical and electrical engineering for all the moving elements of the innovative structure.
