Torpedo Ladle Platform

Re-bricking of the Torpedo Ladle has always required scaffolding to brick the upper half. It was a detailed, which of course means a timely and costly, exercise, just to piece it all together. The client representative and Graeme Leer were given the task to develop a modular fold out maintenance structure that could be installed and removed quickly, thus speeding up the process to saving the client money. Modules were made of aluminium to keep the weight down as they were man handled into position, they had to be small enough to fit into the torpedo opening but large enough to minimise the amount of modules.
