Granada Receives Local Davit Crane Order

Granada Material Handling Ltd has secured a contract by Engie Fabricom to provide davit cranes for the substations of the Moray East and Triton Knoll offshore wind projects.

The UK-based company will design, manufacture and commission five individual Python davit crane units, each of which will be fitted to each of the five jacket foundation platforms.

According to Granada, the cranes have been specifically designed for the wind farms and their respective marine environments and will be delivered over a six-month period.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded two further prestigious UK wind farm projects. Securing this contract has been a real team effort by the Granada Renewable product and service division,” said Mark Sidwell, Director of Granada Material Handling Ltd.

“The contracts to supply Moray East and Triton Knoll contracts is not only great news for Granada but also for our UK based supply chain. Granada has ambitious plans for this market sector and having supplied over 1000 offshore davits is the UK’s leading offshore wind farm davit crane supplier.”

The company said it is already looking to place orders and subcontract specialist areas of work to other UK businesses.

The contract is not the first time Granada will be working on Triton Knoll, as it had previously secured a deal with Smulders for the supply of 90 davit cranes for the transition piece platforms of the 860MW project.
