SITE PREPARATION

Essential requirements to house the Plankz Buoyancy Engine

SPACE
The Plankz Buoyancy Engine is designed for indoor use. Working temperature is 32 ~ 100F.

Components for the Plankz Buoyancy Engine are shipped on pallets and require a pathway of at least 6 ft. width. A minimum 8 ft. wide and 8 ft. high door is recommended to move machine components into the installation area. If a Garage door is used, the retracted door should not interfere with the Plankz Buoyancy Unit. 
It is recommended that an access corridor of 6 ft. be provided around the machine for assembly and maintenance. A roof clearance of at least 2 ft. is required. We can modify the height of the Plankz Buoyancy Engine to accommodate your actual roof height.
Contact us for details.
To allow for later addition of units, it is prudent to design for this eventuality. See the Sample Floor Plan provided.

FLOOR

To facilitate assembly, the roof beams must be able to support at least 1000 lbs. to attach lifting tackle.
