Many of our customers have immense internal capability and prefer to build their own solution. There may be many years of highly specialised knowledge in their specific application, or perhaps there is availability of unused equipment that can be modified and re-furbished.
At the same time, technology in loading arms, platforms and hoses has moved on and various elements need to be replaced with the latest equipment.

Once again our customer had highly experienced contractors on call to build and maintain their various chemical loading operations. The objective was to replace all ground based hose loading operations with loading arms during their shut down period.
Ship and Shore were able to supply loading arm mechanisms in a very short leadtime which enabled the job to be completed as planned.
Ship and Shore began the relationship with this client by supplying our duplex stainless swivels. The excellent user experience with our swivels persuaded the client to work with Kanon on a full turnkey loading system.
The customer used their inhouse PLC expertise to integrate the various proximity sensors, overfill and level monitoring into their internal systems.
Ship and Shore provided commissioning and post commissioning documentation and support ensuring that all stakeholders are extremely well satisfied with the end result.
