BBC World Service Transmitter, Oman

This large BBC World Service Radio Transmitter in the Gulf state of Oman is operated and maintained by Babcock Communications. RG Parkins were engaged by Babcock to assess the structural capacity of replacement frames that were required as part of a refurbishment. Constraints on the available section sizes meant that the replacement frames were heavier than the original. Consequently RG Parkins assessed the impact that the additional weight would have on the support arms. The top of the tower is a vertigo inspiring 76.8m off the ground which would put it amongst the tallest structures in many British cities!
