Electrical and mechanical houses

Sonic Enclosures’ main product is electrical houses, which are produced with a formed metal-panel exterior and insulated with a sheet metal liner.

Examples of equipment enclosed within the electrical house include:

  • Lighting
  • Motor control panel (MCC) boards
  • Service transformers
  • Switchgear
  • Uninterruptable power supply

The design and manufacture of each electrical house are based on the client’s specifications and can be divided into several sections, making it easier to transport by road or sea.

All electrical houses comply with regional building and electrical codes and Sonic Enclosures either installs the equipment supplied by third parties or provides the client with a complete tested package.

Sonic’s range of mechanical houses encloses equipment such as boilers, gas turbines and diesel generation sets, as well as remote-operated vehicle (ROV) launch and recovery controls.

DNV-rated marine and generator enclosures

Sonic’s marine structures cater for severe climates that are associated with the marine and offshore industries.

Products designed for the marine industry include:

  • Berthing quarters
  • ROV control rooms
  • Workshops
  • Chemical storage
  • Marine biology, clean room, critical temperature, isotope research and Antarctic expedition laboratories

These structures are either Sonic’s own heavy-duty models or converted ISO freight containers, depending on their intended application and the related offshore standards and regulations. Heavy-duty units and marine electrical houses are classified by DNV and the US Coast Guard (USCG).

Sonic Enclosures offers a customised generation set that is specifically designed for the client’s power needs, whether it is for lighting, heating or to run equipment and backup systems.

The company’s generator enclosures are made from heavy-gauge sheet steel, insulation and perforated metal liner. They also include supply and discharge air silencers, fuel tanks, controls and engine exhaust systems.

Sonic Enclosures ensures that its generator sets are sound-attenuated and its power generation units are designed to survive different types of environments.

Customised chemical trailers and data vans

Sonic Enclosures designs and produces customised chemical trailers and data vans for the oil and gas industry, which deliver and monitor the delivery of chemicals to land-based wells to enhance recovery.

Lightweight and durable, chemical trailers and data vans range from 30ft-50ft in length and come with an independent power supply, pumps and waste collection.
