Design and Manufacturing
Hoover Ferguson has over half a century of experience in designing and manufacturing intermediate bulk containers, transport frames, offshore containers, accommodation and workspace solutions.
Overview of Design and Engineering Capabilities for Containers/Workspace and Workshop Modules
Hoover Ferguson engineering expertise can be applied to the design and production of bespoke cargo carrying units (CCUs), built to DNV 2.7-1/EN 12079 or DNV 2.7-3 standards. We can design a custom CCU, produce a 3D model and drawings to provide clients with an accurate representation of their requirements, including a structural analysis. The design is built to the highest standards by Hoover Ferguson’s approved suppliers and units are inspected and tested prior to delivery.

- Overview of Design and Build Capabilities
Our accommodation, ancillary and workspace modules are designed in-house to the latest specifications. To the customers who choose this approach we give control over the production process, certainty regarding quality of the end product and the delivery schedules are guaranteed. A standard module from a range of modules sizes can be configured internally to customer requirements using Hoover Ferguson’s "customized standardization".
Health and safety is always a key consideration and the customer is involved at every step to ensure that their exact requirements are met. Our modules are built to DNV 2.7-1, DNV 2.7-2, ABS, EN 12079 and NORSOK standards.
Overview of Design and Engineering Capabilities for Intermediate Buk Containers
Our expertise spans all facets of the design process for IBCs. From designing a multi-compartment tank to custom shape configuration for special applications, Hoover Ferguson's design engineers work with clients to customize tanks to meet our customer needs.
ISO Custom Designs and Engineering
Hoover Ferguson has customized Bulk Delivery Units to provide additional safety features that also provide an ease of use. One modification, a custom pipe-down modification, is designed to keep the operator at ground level allowing easy access to fill, load and access points with both feet on the ground. This reduces the risk of performing tasks from the top of the tank by providing a safer environment.
At Hoover Ferguson, we realize there will always be times that require an operator to perform tasks on top of the tank. To address this issue, we have installed Catwalks and Safety Tram Fall Protection Systems as standard equipment. Now, the operator can walk seamlessly across the top of the tank secured by a safety harness. In addition to fall protection, Hoover has installed a fender feature that includes a step-up ladder – all as standard equipment.
