Jack-up Barge to be dismantled and packed for transportation.
Space Design was tasked to create a system to disassemble the barge in such a way that all components could be packed into as few containers as possible. With an innovative design and packing plan, Space Designwas able to pack the components into 4 containers!
The barge was designed and manufactured in Cape Town and transported by a number
of trucks to Walvis Bay, Namibia
The packing system was to be designed in a simplistic way which would enable
instructions to be understood:
- By every person around the world
- Regardless of knowledge
The benefits were two-fold:
- Reducing assembling time
- Reduced idle time by ONE week = R100 000
- ONE container less to transport – saving approximately R10 000
(From Cape Town to Maputo in Mocambique)
- By packing the barge into 4 containers instead of 5, 7sea was eligible to tender
and potentially win their next project.
