ALE, the Port of Dundee and OM Heavy Lift have signed an agreement with the aim to provide the full service of port operations for the offshore wind and decommissioning industries.

The Port of Dundee currently works with offshore wind and decommissioning clients in the North Sea, to provide but the new agreement is aimed to provide a more complete heavylifting and port handling scope.

ALE recently provided OM Heavy Lift, a subsidary of OilMac, with a Gottwald MK1500 heavy crane which will be utilised under the new agreement.

“We are pleased to be working together to optimise our services to the ever-evolving renewable sector,”
explained Chris Taylor, Commercial Director for ALE. “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.”

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.”

David Webster, Port Manager at the Port of Dundee, said: “A permanent crane removes mobilisation charges, which is important in a competitive market.

“We place significant emphasis upon the decommissioning and renewables construction capabilities of at the Port of Dundee, and it becomes ever more attractive in this field as OM Heavy Lift’s Gottwald MK1500 and Olympus cranes mitigate those cranage costs.”
