Heavy Lifting

Herbosch Kiere has at its disposal a vast range of equipment and plant specifically designed for the heavy lifting (up to 3300tons) and transportation of materials on and to marine based sites. Our expertise within the heavy lifting sector lies within port construction, structure decommissioning, wreck removal and offshore works.

 

To date, most of the contracts we have undertaken in this sector have been in ecological and environmentally sensitive areas and our knowledge and understanding of these complex matters has enabled us to provide our clients with alternative and innovative solutions allowing for successful project completions.

 

By talking to us before your project begins, we can advise you with regard to the best plant available and the most cost effective and safest way of executing your contract requirements. Our Shipyard in Kallo, Antwerp, offers quick mobilisation of plant and equipment to all areas in the UK and Ireland.

 

A €25 million project at South Hook LNG in Milford Haven involved the demolition of an existing oil jetty. We used the lifting vessel RAMBIS for the demolition of berths and mooring dolphins. Approx. 700 concrete and steel piles were extracted down to one metre below bed level.
