Global heavy lift and transportation specialist ALE has expanded its heavy lifting services by establishing a non-disclosure agreement with the Port of Dundee, which is owned by Forth Ports, and lifting, jacking and storage specialist OM Heavy Lift to provide the full service of port operations.

ALE 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.

“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,” explained Chris Taylor, Commercial Director for ALE.

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.”
