Advantage was recently contacted by Gardner Denver, a global provider of air compressor and vacuum equipment for the industrial, energy and medical industries. Specifically, they needed a mobile solution to reach areas where a temporary air compressor system was called for. Advantage converted two standard 20’ shipping containers into vacuum/compressor stations that can be picked up and delivered to any required site. Modifications included a wide set of doors along the long side of the container for easy access, provisions for venting, and pipe penetrations and sleeves for utility connections. The floor was heavily rebuilt with 1” steel beams and cross members underneath reinforced steel plating, welded plates to secure the compressor equipment, and trays with drain systems to prevent leakage. Each container was finished with industrial-grade gun metal paint for long-term durability.
