50t Silo Installation

Client: Kotzur (Toowoomba)

Project: Design and Drafting of Frame to Suit 50 t Silo

Date: 07/2017             Time to Completion:  4 weeks


  • Laser scan data of an existing grain shed,
  • Detailed fabrication drawing pack for structural frame to suit 50t silo and instructions for modification of the 50 t silo to suit the new frame.

Description: Ferrier Engineering was engaged by Kotzur to complete detailed design and drafting of a frame to suit a 50 tonne silo to be installed in an existing grain shed. Owing to the lack of available space in the shed due to existing equipment, Ferrier Engineering elected to perform a complete laser scan / survey of the site. This allowed Ferrier Engineering to bring the frame within 40 mm of the existing structure on three sides. These installation clearances would have been very difficult to achieve using traditional hand-measuring techniques.
