One of the UK’s fastest-growing energy services groups has embarked on a multi-million pound expansion of its Liebherr crane fleet as it steps up its activities in the renewable field and continues its impressive growth in the oil & gas, construction sectors.
Global Crane Services, a division of Global Port Services Scotland, has introduced this year eleven new models to join a fleet already dominated by Liebherr machines. The latest acquisitions range from the LG 1750, LTM 1750-9.1 (800t capacity), LTM 1650 down through the weight ranges to our LTM 1230,LTR 1220 and multiple other models including the LTM 1110, LTM 1090, LTM 1070 & LTM 1060.
The group recently launched Global Wind Projects - a dedicated commissioning and installation division - with the aim of becoming one of the UK and Ireland's leading providers of on- and off-shore turbine installation services and the cranes will play a crucial role in the new division’s development.
A spokesperson from Global Crane Services said“further investment in Liebherr cranes featuring the latest technology would continue to strengthen the company’s position in the industry sectors“
Established in 2013 and operating through four depots, Global Crane Services runs a extensive fleet of mobile, crawler and strut jib models from 35t upwards.
Global Port Services is itself part of the multi-discipline Global Energy Group based in Inverness and which owns the Port of Nigg facility at the entrance to the Cromarty Firth.
A new quay recently completed at the port increases capacity and puts the facility among the top deepwater harbours in the UK. It has been described as “a game changer”, enabling it to service multiple large-scale energy projects simultaneously.
