We have been increasingly more involved in renewable energy projects regarding the lifting, maintenance, and management of the lifting equipment, thanks to our Hull branch.
Towne have partnered with some big names like Siemens and Vestas, making sure that their sites had the best protocols in place. As a result of this, a ‘lifting village’ was introduced onsite during the Hornsea project in Hull. Towne staff manned the project and they provided around the clock support to the venture.
Our role included, but was not limited to:
- Dropped Object Surveys
- Lifting Equipment Inspection
- Onsite Lifting Equipment Repairs
- Stock Management
- Subcontractor Inspection
- Equipment Supply
The village provided a far safer work environment, and reduced downtime. It meant that lifting equipment could be immediately certified, replaced, or repaired. Furthermore, our management of the equipment ensured its immediate replacement, and our skills in repair meant that equipment costs were reduced.
