The variety of equipment used and the locations that they are required to be delivered to by utility companies and their major contract partners regularly means the use of lorry loaders provides the perfect solution to many transport and lifting requirements.
Delivery to site can often involve transporting to remote and inaccessible locations throughout the UK and the ability to offload and place equipment exactly where it needed is a major bonus in these challenging environments. We currently operate in all areas of utility provision including electricity, gas, water and waste water.
Electricity is a major area of operation and we currently provide services to Electricity North West for the placement and removal of transformers, switchgear and other associated equipment from their substation network throughout North West England. This work was originally carried out by 40T all terrain cranes or Iron Fairies with a separate transport provision and was costly and complicated to manage. The provision of large capacity lorry loaders has simplified the whole process as well as offering major cost savings to the client.
Other clients are also making use of the lorry loader concept to offer a cost effective alternative to lifting solutions on various projects including pumping station and treatment works maintenance, medium to high voltage primary and transmission substation construction and refurbishment, wind farm construction and commissioning to name but a few.
The addition of a specialised low loader in 2012 to transport large cable drums combined with our large capacity lorry loaders also give us the ability to lift and transport cable drums up to 17,000 kg. This combination has proved very successful with many of our clients and has offered a cost effective solution to expensive crane hire.
