Osprey – Ready and Able to Deliver for their Clients

Over the last 25 years, Osprey has invested in a huge range of transport and lifting equipment for critical, oversized assets. It is important for four reasons, all of which can make a difference to their client’s bottom line:

  • Availability
  • Capability
  • QHSE
  • Cost

Delivering, 24/7, 365 days a year, there is no doubt about their availability. They have one of the largest fleets of SPMTs in the UK, which is supported by heavy-lift mobile cranes, their own extensive fleet of flat-top barges and inland barges, cable carousels, hydraulic jacks, skids and more.



This means there is never any doubt about meeting clients’ needs when it comes to scheduling in the right equipment for a project, onshore or off. In addition, they have also drawn on their marine engineering experience to commission bespoke equipment, such as twin-spooling cable carousels, to meet a client’s needs.

Osprey are selected for their capability. An owner-operator gains insights over time, learning how to use standard equipment safely in new and unusual ways to overcome challenges in the field. This means that, if a problem seems insurmountable or a solution does not yet exist, Osprey will often have the experience and expertise to try something more innovative.



There have been many occasions when a large mobile crane has been the obvious choice for moving an over-sized, critical asset for example. Osprey have both the LG1750, a 750t lattice boom truck mounted crane, and an LTM1800(D), a 800t telescopic mobile crane that takes a derrick and super lift attachment, raising its lifting capacity. Their LG1550 operates on an identical chassis to the LTM1800(D) but can lift more at given radius due to the extra strength of the strut jib.



Their fleet of Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) provides an extensive range of lifting options that may provide alternative solutions for a project. The deck height of over 120 individual units can be adjusted hydraulically for lifting and lowering the load.

Combined with mobile hydraulic gantries, a skating system and jacks, Osprey can deliver project solutions for the most complex installations, delivering to unusual, constrained project sites, or routes through small villages, or even inside buildings.



Safety is always a priority. With a variety of equipment operating daily, sometimes 24 hours a day, means that they have a responsibility to operate these machines with QHSE as a core focus. Their dedicated QHSE Management System ensures that all operational risks are managed and conducted to their own high standards. Working in everchanging environments with complex engineering solutions needed almost daily commits them to continually improving their commitment to high safety standards.

Maintaining competition, they design solutions with their own equipment resulting in innovative execution saving critical time whenever possible. This yields surety during the key phase of infrastructure installation, driving cost down and confidence up.
