AMOG can assist all equipment designers, manufacturers and operators with the management of plant, equipment, and support structure integrity through all stages of the plant life cycle. We undertake advanced Structural Engineering analysis of assets and equipment ranging from bulk material handling machines, conveyors, tunnels, tanks, silos, pipelines and support structures for any plant or equipment equipment. Using state of the art analytical packages, AMOG can design and assess complex structures and components requiring non-lineal solutions.

Through the application of advanced structural and dynamic analysis techniques, the reliability and production of equipment can be improved, replacement intervals for equipment components extended, and the remaining life in aged equipment assessed and potentially extended.
