Electrical control cabin and picking stations - Container Conversion Project

Electrical control cabin and picking stations - Container Conversion Project

The brief for this project was to create an electrical control cabin and two picking stations for a waste recycling plant.  It was fairly complex as there were various conveyor belts which needed to enter and exit the picking stations at specific points.

Our solution involved converting a 20ft container into the control room, which we fitted out as an office.  We added the two purpose-built steel picking stations with the required apertures and ensured that the units were all lined and insulated, with heaters for the cold weather.

The customer chose their colour from our wide range of RAL colours - below you can see a gallery of the finished projects, we're hoping to have some 'action shots' from the customer shortly!
