ALE’s agreement increases port services for renewables sector

ALE has expanded its heavylifting services by establishing a non-disclosure agreement with the Port of Dundee and OM Heavy Lift to provide the full service of port operations.

ALE, the global heavylifting specialists who provide the handling, transportation and installation of heavy loads with over 40 branches worldwide, signed the agreement with OM Heavy Lift, a subsidary of OilMac who recently bought ALE’s Gottwald MK1500 crane, and the Port of Dundee.

ALE will be working alongside OM Heavy Lift, with the use of their heavy crane, and the port, who currently work with offshore wind and decommisioning clients in the North Sea, to provide a more complete heavylifting and port handling scope of work to the the renewables market.

With many years of experience, the three companies are ideally suited to combine their assets and provide the storage as well as port handling of offshore modules.

“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.”

David Webster, Port Manager at the Port of Dundee, said: “A permanent crane removes mobilisation charges, which is important in a competitive market.

“We place significant emphasis upon the decommissioning and renewables construction capabilities of at the Port of Dundee, and it becomes ever more attractive in this field as OM Heavy Lift’s Gottwald MK1500 and Olympus cranes mitigate those cranage costs.”

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
