20ft Container General Stores with Racking & Bespoke Electrics

Our client, a dockyard engineering firm, asked us to produce a series of general stores for them to place around their dockyard. The stores are for storage of general supplies around their large site.

The racking was fabricated by us, in durable mild steel, and the electrics included various types of sockets for charging different types of tools.

The client also wanted two types of electrical inlet on the exterior, so that wherever the units get placed in their yard they will work with one of their two types of supply on site.
