Design and Capabilities:

Metro Engineering has full design capability to both design and manufacture cryogenic road tankers to all the relevant Australian Standards. All designs are developed using Solidworks 3D solid modeling software with FEA capability. We also use volumetric weight distribution software to enable accurate axle reactions for each type of product and various fill levels. 

 Our design team has extensive knowledge of all the relevant Standards, thus ensuring that the products offered are fully compliant to operate in the desired environment. Road regulations and limitations are ever changing and Metro Engineering endeavors to keep abreast of these changes to enable maximum payloads to be achieved. Designs are Third Party verified and registered with the relevant regulatory bodies. Metro Engineering manufactures cryogenic road tankers almost solely in-house and some of the equipment used in the manufacturing process includes:
