Fjori specialises in the design and assessment of pavements designed specifically for port handling equipment and environments. This includes bulk handling, container handling, forklift, mobile harbour cranes, reachstackers, RMG, RTG and straddle carriers. By their very nature, ports are usually located in areas with poor ground conditions, and yet the loading applied by port handling equipment is, from a pavement engineering perspective, the most onerous of any of the transport environments.
Port pavements require a totally different approach in how we make them function, for how long we expect them to function, and just what maintenance levels are acceptable.
At Fjøri, our experience with such heavy loads at both ports and elsewhere mean that we understand these issues very well and can provide robust designs that are tailored to local conditions and yet represent best value in terms of material choice and construction method.
