Existing Structures Engineering, Inc. provides Specialized Services in places all over the World, most recently deploying to Lumut, Malaysia. Malaysia is a distance of about 10,450 miles away, (4° 14′ 0″ North, 100° 38′ 0″ East) and ESE’s experts were commissioned to evaluate a marine mechanical lift dock for dry docking large ships, including warships. The structure is built of large steel girders and beams with a timber and crane rail deck and after 30 years had finally corroded beyond the point of repair.
The decommissioned shiplift will be replaced with a modern brand new lift. ESE was tasked with assisting in evaluation, planning and implementation of decommissioning and later will return to assist with installation of the new structure and recommissioning of the operation.
