By Christian Shelton21 November 2018
Global heavy lift and transportation specialist ALE has expanded its heavy lifting services by establishing a non-disclosure agreement with the Port of Dundee, which is owned by Forth Ports, and lifting, jacking and storage specialist OM Heavy Lift to provide the full service of port operations.
ALE said it will work alongside OM Heavy Lift – which bought ALE’s Gottwald Mk1500 crane – and the Port of Dundee to provide a more complete heavy lifting and port handling scope of work to the renewables market.
“We are pleased to be working together to optimise our services to the ever-evolving renewable sector,” explained Chris Taylor, commercial director for ALE. “The Port of Dundee is becoming an increasingly bigger player in the offshore markets and, by promoting our services together, we can really optimise these opportunities and provide a fully integrated service to our clients.”
Alex Fyfe, managing director at OM Heavy Lift, said, “We’re anticipating our heavy crane capability to be a significant attraction for offshore wind developments. The Gottwald MK1500 is a vital asset for future offshore wind and decommissioning projects in Dundee and will propel our business in the medium term, and beyond.”
