Shipping Container Conversions
GSE has experience in the provision of ISO container conversions to suit high-tech resource applications, along with first-hand knowledge in the preparation and implementation of the functional performance, quality, reliability and safety requirements generally accepted throughout these industry sectors.
Containers are built to be robust and durable since they can be exposed to all environmental conditions, from tropical to sub-Arctic. They are subject to potential damage at all stages of loading, unloading, shipment and handling.
This makes them ideal as secure and robust enclosures for equipment and facilities to be used in highly-mobile technological support roles.
The recent conversion of an ISO 20 container for the PAMELA propulsion laboratory for the European Space Agency (ESA) has shown the high level of flexibility afforded by the base structure, providing a space-efficient and rugged mobile laboratory facility for a fraction of the cost of a purpose built permanent resource, without loss of quality.
The scope of application for these conversions is vast, from secure storage and transport solutions, overspill workshops and assembly and test areas to manned control rooms and site support modules.
This facility will be deployed to Launch Sites, primarily in Asia, which do not have analysis facilities, or where using alternative services for analysis is costly. The environment can be hostile and insecure, so the design must accommodate safeguards, as well as a fully-equipped facility, in order to perform activities quickly and accurately while in-situ.
Due to their adaptability and low cost, containers can be easily converted into a variety of different uses, whether it’s site or home office, workshop, generator shed, canteen, accommodation or general unit for storage, containers can be adapted to suit any environment.
GSE Ltd are specialists in converting units for hi-tech environments including clean rooms and laboratories to allow high precision work in remote areas, first aid cabins, control centres and power stations.
GSE provides containers to meet any role, in any environment, fully certified and purpose-converted to the specific needs of Customers and their respective industrial standards.
