Barloworld cranes up specialised solutions
Barloworld Transport has extended its range of specialised transport solutions with the launch of Barloworld Cranes. The new division will enable all member companies to enhance both their transport and lifting services.
“Having identified the growing need for dedicated transport and lifting services, the new division will allow the group to provide clients with a comprehensive, turnkey solution – all from one provider,” says Neil Henderson, CE of Barloworld Transport.
“Under the guidance of a strong and highly experienced management team, Barloworld Cranes will offer tremendous value and scope for clients in southern Africa and beyond,” he adds.
The initial Barloworld Cranes fleet will boast seven German-engineered, all-terrain Liebherr cranes ranging from 34 to 60 t, and six Tadano truck-mounted cranes ranging from 40 to 200 t. While drawing on strategic partnerships with well-known industry leaders, Barloworld Cranes will be able to take on projects with loads of up to 750 t.
“We will offer support on all types of rigging and lifting jobs, as well as a dedicated project management service for all rigging and lifting operations that would form part of the client’s scope of work,” says the division’s Rebone Motsatsi.
Barloworld Cranes will also provide 2D and 3D rigging studies detailing all information required to execute the lifts safely and efficiently; placing strong emphasis on the risk assessments for all lifting and rigging operations.
