Albury-Wondonga Hospital were after a quick solution for a Covoid-19 testing station which could be deployed within a short timeframe. Royal Wolf provided a 20ft Lunchroom and a 20ft Site Office so their administration staff wouldn't be required to walk in and out of the main part of the hospital therefore reducing the risk of contaminating patients and staff.
The Royal Wolf team had some great input and we were able to set the drive through testing station up in a few days. This project represents another great solution Royal Wolf have been able to come up in a quick turnaround for the customer.
From the earthquakes in Christchurch to the bushfires in Victoria, Royal Wolf shipping containers have been used as part of many natural disaster responses across Australasia. Our shipping containers are safe, versatile and weatherproof, providing protection against wind, water and vermin.
WHY USE SHIPPING CONTAINERS IN NATURAL DISASTERS?
Thanks to their simple design and durability, Royal Wolf shipping containers can serve a multitude of functions from emergency accommodation units to makeshift hospitals and kitchens. Shipping containers are easy to transport making them the ideal solution for natural disasters, including fires, floods, earthquakes and cyclones, which often strike unexpectedly and require an immediate response.
THEY ARE MULTIFUNCTIONAL
There are many applications for Royal Wolf shipping containers in natural disasters including:
THEY ARE QUICK TO DEPLOY
Royal Wolf 10ft, 20ft and 40ft shipping containers can be transported via road, rail, sea or air, meaning they can be delivered to disaster sites where access is limited. With 38 locations spread across Australasia, we can freight our products to the site of the disaster quickly and cost effectively. Royal Wolf also offers a stackable solution, so multiple units can be delivered in one trip and stacked to create a total emergency response site.
THEY ARE EASY TO MODIFY
Shipping containers can be modified to meet the unique needs of the response team and community affected by the disaster. Our customised Disaster Response Unit, for example, serves as a mobile operations room and an accommodation unit for staff. It comes complete with air conditioning, a shower and pump out toilet, a 500L water tank, two flat screen TVs, a kitchenette and an office space.
