The challenge

  • Each mast is of identical construction, comprising 3 tubes tapering and curved to the top.  The tubes are clad in 5mm steel plates, forming 5 flat sides, gradually reducing to 4 as the structure thinned at 14m.
  • Creating the 5mm steel plates, that cannot be derived from the usual templates

The solution

  • Create twisted folded plates and obtain each plate outlines

“Advance Steel gave me the ability and confidence to handle this complex structure, which saved time and materials.”
