Technical Cranes Ltd supplies BBRT – Scotland Craneage for New Facility
Technical Cranes Ltd was awarded the contract of supplying Balfour Beatty Rail Track Systems with new craneage and gantry steelwork for its new Scottish facility. What was formerly Edgar Allens, sited at Bathgate relocated during 2008 to a new facility at South Queensferry.
A total of 1100 linea meters of gantry track was supplied and installed with support haunches throughout 10 different bays on the site, complete with a powerfeed conductor system.
These gantries support a total of 19 cranes ranging from 5 tonne to 20 tonne for a wide range of applications such as foundry use, fabrication and workshop maintenance.
As part of the contract, the redundant craneage at Bathgate was taken in part exchange.
The cranes were all fitted with Itowa Winner radio control systems that Technical Cranes Ltd is UK agents for. Ongoing service and maintenance will be handled by A & B Crane and Electrical, a division of Technical Cranes Limited that serves the northeast and Scottish borders.
