Eclipse Engineering developed a modular structure without sacrificing cost-effectiveness

Customer need

Analysis and design of 9-story modular structure to support equipment associated with the manufacture of high-purity silicon for solar panels.

The challenge
Design a cost effective structure and foundation that will withstand the deadweight, seismic, and wind loads, but will still allow easy access for operational personnel.

The solution
Eclipse engineers applied finite element techniques to analyze the proposed structural layout, and make recommendations to correct deficiencies such that the design conforms to the Building Code and customers specifications.

Customer benefits

  • Modular sections can be added or removed as demand for the product varies
  • Structure and foundation meet the requirements of the local building code
  • 24/7 easy access to equipment increases throughput, and reduces risk of injury
