Heavy lift companies, UK’s ALE and Australia's ECR have formed a joint venture to operate Down Under. The new entity is dubbed ECRHeavylift.
ECR is based in Gladstone with two operating centres in central Queensland. It owns fleet of cranes ranging between weights from 7te – 500te, a fleet of hydraulic modular trailers and specialized jacking and lifting equipment working primarily within the heavy industrial and mining industries.
ALE heavylift and transportation company has over 20 offices worldwide, across Europe and the Far East. ALE works in offshore, oil gas and petrochemicals, civil, nuclear, power generation, renewable and shipyards industries.
The fleet owned by ALE includes the AL.SK, the world’s largest capacity land based crane fleet and the Mega Jack, which is capable of lifting in excess of 60,000te.
ECRHeavylift’s director, Kane Davison, said the JV “will offer the complete heavylift and transportation solution, capable of lifting anything from 7te- 60,000te.”
