EFASS Hangar Container Packing
The EFASS military building range has been designed with packing, repacking and fast track transportation high on the priority list to ensure that all parts can be kept together in a pre-defined container to ensure compliance and to enable the erection crew to unload to suit the build plan.
Each container has its own designated inventory supported by individual packing lists, together with a detailed sequence of loading and unloading instructions. This de-skills this operation and ensures that all procedures are easily controlled in theatre and distributed for redeployment by air freight.
Transporting an EFASS couldn't be easier as they are supplied with their own 20ft lightweight containers which are manufactured to industry standards and can be freighted by land, sea or air. The containers stay with the building during its deployment and are usually used as an additional storage facility until the hangar is moved.
All up weight has to be flexible as it is controlled by mode of transport and the ability to be loaded onto that transport. Sea freight has more or less no restrictions other than maximum plated weight, but airfreight is variable as different military forces have access to different aircraft each with their own restrictions on loading. Fortunately EFASS is very versatile and can be loaded into its own containers to suit almost any requirement.
The photos show a 25m span x 36m long EFASS with Heli-Door in each end, packed into four 20ft containers. An all up weight of 9980kg maximum was specified by the Canadian Military.
Note: Volume is far below its capacity in this application as the maximum weight allowed was specified by the customer as a primary factor resulting in the need for four containers.
