Pinto Terminal - Alabama State Port Authority, Mobile, Alabama.
Terminal Ambient Conditions
The Manufacturer shall study the onerous climatic conditions which exist, as failure to do so may result in the production of Forklift trucks and equipment unsuitable for the required application. The site of the works in Mobile, Alabama is in an area of high temperature and high humidity, which in conjunction with a salty dust-laden marine environment produces very severe corrosive conditions. The design features, all material and equipment supplied and the protective treatment of steelwork must be designed for the following ambient conditions:
(Plus allowance for solar radiation which may increase surface temperature to 50°C)
Up to 100%
The Forklift trucks and equipment will be designed to operate with minimum maintenance in the defined conditions, and care must be taken to ensure against overheating of the electrical and mechanical equipment, especially where exposed to direct sunlight.
