Disregarding electrical engineering, as described above – engineering is an expression that covers a multitude of industries.

We make a start with Civil Engineering – the building of roads and bridges. The bridge sections forming part of the Limerick by-pass were pre-fabricated in Turkey and shipped direct to Ireland. STGs role was to berth and discharge the arriving vessel, subsequently feeding the units sequentially into the construction program. On the one hand, not too critical a task. On the other, the slightest slip could frustrate the build process – causing a significant time and cost overrun..

We move on to an expanding industry – Environmental Engineering. This could be anything from ensuring that a production facility does not pollute the planet, to improving water quality – both areas where STG has been involved in the past. We can well remember the Italian factory that was forced to close – until STG rushed out sophisticated, filtration units from the UK.

Another major STG market is Chemical Engineering. One project involved glass lined, reactor vessels – from Ireland to Italy, for return once the glass lining had been replaced – for over a year, shuttling backwards and forwards. Then there was the technique of implosion – making a “sandwich” of two metals fused together, by the use of explosives, used in the manufacture of reactors – this time from the UK to Italy.

Just a few of the projects associated with engineering, in the broadest sense, over the years.
