Shipping Container Acoustics Barrier

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

SEA Containers NZ was recently asked to help the team at Niagra Sawmill ( in Invercargill to restrict the noise from the logging machinery, which had started to effect neighbour relations.

A large scale logistical exercise was put in place to manoeuvre and stack 40' high cube shipping containers around the perimeter of the premises. 

The containers are a cost effective solution, rather than building a permanent wall.  They have helped reduce the noise, and are transportable in the future if the need arises and they have to be moved.


From Tauranga to the Trenches - Mobile Container Exhibition

Monday, September 07, 2015

SEA Containers NZ converted two 20' shipping containers into a secure mobile exhibition to help support the World War 1 Centenary Commemorations.  We were tasked to maximise the impact these would have when on show to the public, plus to ensure they had complete portability due to the schedule of events around the Bay of Plenty.

The exhibition has been received very well, both young and old, with its interactive technology and visual displays.'from-tauranga-to-the-trenches'-mobile-exhibition

SEA Containers NZ features in Renovate Magazine

Thursday, July 09, 2015

SEA Containers NZ was recently interviewed for a feature article inside Renovate Magazine (issue 15, Pages 92-97) which hit the newsstand in June 2015.

Our very own Auckland and Northland regional manager, Odin Madsen, was happy to pass on his advice to readers of the magazine, along with other companies such as IQ Container Homes (

With shows such as Grand Designs and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, the popularity of container homes are increasing ... not to mention the growing cost of land around New Zealand's metro areas is pushing our clients to think 'outside of the box', or in this case 'inside the box' and looking at non-traditional building methods.

The containers already have the advantage of structural integrity, plus there portability make them an ideal and practical base to convert into a container house or sleep-out.

Bikes in Schools Program - Shipping Container Storage

Sunday, May 17, 2015

SEA Containers NZ was approached by the teachers at Tamaki Primary to help protect the new bikes they were acquiring as part of the Bikes in Schools program ( 

The team at SEA Containers had to consider a number of factors ensuring this container met a number of requirements

  1. Security was paramount - lockable roller doors and the shipping container doors were welded together to minimise entry into the container
  2. 100% wind and water tight shipping container was required to protect the bikes whilst stored
  3. The kids needed to be able to easily access the bikes, so roller doors provided the perfect solution
  4. To protect the bikes from damage whilst being stored, bike racks were installed inside the shipping container to prevent the bikes from falling over
  5. Shelving and hooks on the walls were installed to keep the inside of the container as clear as possible so the kids aren't tripping over hazards
  6. Container was to be painted to suit the school colours, so it blended in with the surroundings

SEA Containers NZ are proud to have supplied this shipping container to help the kids of Tamaki Primary enjoy their new bike track and to learn bike safety. 

Engineering workshop shipping container

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Sea Containers NZ was tasked to design, build and commission an engineering workshop inside a 40’ shipping container to support a super yacht travelling the high seas. The container was designed to work off the grid, and included luxuries such as refrigeration; mammoth amounts of dry storage for sails, tools, ropes and various arrays of sailing equipment; twin-voltage to work in any country, and most importantly for the crew – a separate bar fridge, WIFI capable and air-conditioning.

One challenge was to design and engineer a gantry inside the container that was able to slide out 2.5 metres to collect the tender boat and store the tender whilst being shipped around the world. The gantry itself was engineered to lift 1 tonne of dead weight.

It is needless to say, the team in the SEA Containers workshop are proud of what was achieved. A lot of research and development went into this container, and the quality of the finish has only boosted our confidence in meeting the requirements of any client no matter the complexity of the design.   

The comments from the yachts chief engineer was particularly welcomed:

"From initial contact right through to design, construction (and change of orders!), and delivery of our container, SEA Containers NZ did an excellent job of supplying us with an amazing product, finished to an extremely high standard and most importantly on time and on budget! We are extremely happy with the service we received and the level of quality in their product, I would use them again for future projects without hesitation." - Daz Neale, Chief Engineer
