Perth, WA

Project Duration

6 Years & ongoing

WesTrac partnered with McDowall Affleck to design a series of transport frames for safely transporting spare parts between their parts exchange facility in Perth and various sites around Australia. The frames were designed to be transported by truck, lifted by forklift, and stored outdoors where they would be subjected to wind loads. Over 400 different frames were designed for parts including engines, radiators, wheel groups, hydraulic cylinders, differentials, and more. Weights for the parts ranged up to 15 tonnes.
