The range of goods manufactured and transported within the energy sector are perhaps more diverse than in any other industry.

Packaging for Energy & Precision Technology

At Crocodile Packaging, our experts have vast experience in developing completely bespoke transport packaging solutions for a huge range of energy production equipment and components, precision technology or machinery. We can help you find a solution that fits your specific needs.

If you are in charge of shipping operations, finding a solution that meets all your specifications can feel like a daunting task.

Diverse sources of energy

Compared to 20 years ago there is a considerable and growing diversity within the energy sector with the welcome rise in sustainable and renewable energy sources leading the way.

The most common renewable energy sources are:

  • Solar energy
  • Wind power
  • Biomass energy
  • Hydro-electric
  • Tidal energy
  • Geothermal energy

The above list makes up an increasing percentage of the world’s requirement, but until further development takes place we need to accept that there is still an ongoing requirement for carbon-based energy sources:

  • Coal
  • Oil
  • Gas

Industrial packaging & storage

The energy sector is rapidly evolving, with developments in storage and transportation playing an increasingly crucial role in powering the planet.

In addition to production, the storage of energy has become increasingly important with the technical gains in battery technology becoming vital for the automobile industry as well as industrial and domestic energy use. The transmission of electrical power generated by renewable sources is also undergoing significant changes, with ultra-efficient cable technology that reduce power loss and other wireless power transmission systems becoming more prevalent in the commercial world.

With such a wide range of developing technologies in the energy sector, the transportation of plant, components and materials is becoming more important.

Crocodile Packaging has been providing sustainable packaging solutions to the sector for over 30 years, with state-of-the-art production processes that produce consistent and accurate products that are fully customized to each transportation task.

Shipping crates customised to transport unique technology

Transporting precision technology used in the energy industry can be a complex task. It can range from shipping small pieces of precision equipment to state-of-the-art factories to shifting bulky heavy equipment to its installation site.

Whatever type of packaging solution you need, Crocodile Packaging most likely has experience in creating similar solutions in the past.

One obvious benefit could be using Crocodile crates for components arriving from your suppliers and then reusing them for onward shipment, resulting in cost savings and hugely increased sustainability.

The key issues will always be the same:

  • Maximum protection

    • The most important part of a shipping crate – the external walls of a Crocodile crate will always provide the ultimate protection due to clever design and high quality boards.
  • Bespoke dimensions

    • Your product is unlikely to have been designed with an off-the-shelf shipping crate in mind so using a Crocodile system to move your product is a good place to begin – we fit our crates around YOUR product – not the other way round!
  • Precision manufacturing

    • Crocodile’s world-renowned export wooden clip system requires us to pay close attention to our manufacturing tolerances and we extend this requirement to all the customised internal support kit that may be required.
  • Consistent & reliable supply

    • Your products will have to be manufactured to tight tolerances otherwise they won’t work – and they will all need to be exactly the same. That is why Crocodile are the perfect partner for providing your packaging system. We aim for accuracy, consistency and reliability. Take the first step and get in touch today.
