At ET-Global, we leverage a distinctive blend of engineering skills, honed over years of hands-on experience across mining, marine, and industrial sectors.

Our exceptional expertise is not just our pride and passion, but it is also what sets us apart in the competitive landscape. With our comprehensive range of services, we are equipped to meet your needs at every stage of the project from initial planning to final implementation.

Structural Steelwork Designs

ET-Global is a leading expert in the field of structural steel designs, showcasing excellence in every aspect. Our proficiency lies in utilising specialised Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, enabling us to effectively address seismic, natural frequency, and harmonic response, as well as linear and nonlinear static structures. By using FEA in conjunction with other design tools, we are able to precisely measure and analyse the stresses and vibrations present in both new and existing structures.

Below are some of the typical Structural Steelwork structures our team provides designs for:

  • Portal frame structures (e.g workshops, warehouses)
  • Static supporting structures (e.g transfer towers, access structures, pipe bridges)
  • Dynamic supporting structures (e.g screening structures, VGF structures, crushing structures)
  • Platework (e.g silos, bins, chutes, underpans, thickeners)
  • Multi-storey plant supporting structures (e.g recovery structures, scrubbing & screening structures)
  • High-impact structures (e.g static grizzlies, box fronts)
  • Crane gantries & crawl beams
  • Modular mobile plant structures

Reinforced Concrete Designs

As part of our complete design suite, we offer comprehensive solutions for reinforced concrete structures. Our experienced team of engineers specialises in creating robust and efficient designs that meet the highest industry standards. Leveraging advanced software and innovative techniques, we design and optimise concrete structures for durability, load-bearing capacity, and resistance to environmental factors. We ensure that our reinforced concrete designs are structurally sound, cost-effective, and tailored to our client’s needs. With our expertise, we deliver reliable and sustainable solutions for a wide range of projects.

Below are some of the typical Reinforced Concrete structures our team provides designs for:

  • Multi-storey buildings
  • Suspended slab, beams & column systems
  • Earth & water-retaining structures
  • Stockpile tunnels
  • Cantilever conveyor support trestles
  • Raft slabs & surface beds
  • Strip & pad footings

Conveyor Systems

ET-Global has designed standardised conveyor systems with pre-developed belt sizes of 600mm, 750mm, 900mm, and 1050mm to cater to various applications. These systems incorporate standard gantries, trestles, and components that can be easily assembled to meet the client’s requirements quickly. Additionally, if your project demands a more customised approach, we offer bespoke designs for all standard belt sizes as well.

Below are some of the typical Conveyor Systems and services our team provides designs for:

  • Mechanical designs
  • Interplant, overland, decline, stockpile, trippers and belt feeder conveyors
  • Ultra low-temperature designs
  • Modular systems
  • Audits and upgrades on existing belts

Marine Engineering

Design and analysis of plant structures on ships require specialist knowledge of marine engineering standards, codes of practice, ships motions and industry-specific regulations. ET-Global has been working in this domain since its inception and offers a world-class engineering service for marine engineering applications.

Below are some of the typical Marine Engineering services our team provides designs for:

  • Above and below deck strengthening to classification society
  • Equivalency studies
  • Masses & moments calculations

3D Modeling & Draughting Services

At ET-Global, our proficiency extends into the digital realm of 3D modelling, draughting, and rendering. Our seasoned team, adept in numerous specialised software packages, aligns seamlessly with our client’s requirements in both 2D and 3D environments. Through this, we unlock the power of visualisation, enabling you to experience your project before it materialises. We have the entire Autodesk Suite which comes to a total of 64 products including, Revit, Inventor, Civil 3D, Robot, Navisworks Management, Advanced Steel & Recap Pro as well as the full MultiSUITE package.

On-Site Support

ET-Global’s involvement in a number of structural integrity/ safety audits and refurbishment programs for numerous mining houses uniquely positions us to offer in-depth specialist assistance in the form of asset integrity quantification, asset refurbishment and asset management strategies.

We have a team of Engineers specialising in on-site inspections and the analysis of structural deficiencies and failures (partial & catastrophic), with experience in the process of root cause analysis for some of the largest mining houses in the world. We offer support to clients with existing structures that are problematic in terms of vibration, fatigue or perceived motion. Engineers measure the structural response on-site, and using specialist Operational Modal Analysis software can provide clear insights into vibration problems and their causes.
