Darren Adams, director at ALE UK, said, “By enhancing our overall marine capabilities and offering a full barge package, it compliments what we already do. Teamed with our marine engineering division, we are proud to provide an end-to-end service.
“By bringing this much needed service to the market, we can continue to find the best solution for our clients to complete the job.”
The new barge fleet adds to the services already offered including engineering and project management and the design of bespoke solutions including ramps, grillages, seafastening, winches and ballast pumps.
