ABOUT OM HEAVY LIFT Contact UsHome

OM HEAVY LIFT have the largest permanent quay side crane in the UK at Dundee Port - A Gottwald Mk1500. It is the largest fixed quayside crane in the UK. Its scale is such that with a 58m boom it can lift 875 Tonnes from the centre of a barge or vessel.

OM HEAVY LIFT’s practical and professional approach utilises the depth of experience and knowledge of our team to provide solutions for our clients. We work closely with our clients to deliver reliability and performance. We review and analyse every aspect of the lifting operation to provide safe and practical outcomes for all lifting and transport operations.

A permanent crane removes mobilisation charges which can be significant. Market leading day rates will enable Dundee port to attract decommissioning and renewables construction as it will be considerably cheaper as craneage represents a significant element of the onshore processing cost.

A further attraction of Dundee along with the new quay and the heavy lift crane is the 25 hectares of lay down area immediately adjacent to the heavy lift crane pad. OM Heavy will offer alternative methods and models to ensure Dundee port leads the way in the Re-use / equipment market as well as offering fixed price options for all projects along-side Dundee port.

The combination of the physical attributes of the port and the commercial advantage delivered by the crane will ensure projects currently lost to Scotland can now be more competitively tendered and won.

Heavy crane capability is also considered to be a significant attraction for offshore wind developments in the medium term, 2020 and beyond.
