Osprey to Add 1000t of Lifting Capacity with New Enerpac JS250 System
Osprey Group is building on its expansion plans with a new Enerpac JS250 hydraulic jack-system enhancing capability and certainty of delivery for special projects.
The Enerpac JS250 system will be a valuable addition to Osprey’s portfolio, as the investment provides 1000 tonnes of lifting capacity. This is a multi-point, synchronous lifting system with self-contained hydraulics. The Enerpac system enables lifts to a height of 10m, with further capability allowing assets to be skidded into final position with ease or transferred to other modes of transport. The system’s compact design means larger loads can be moved within a smaller footprint – and the investment also boosts Osprey’s overall proposition.
Simon Massey, Head of Osprey’s Heavy Lift Division, “We’re doing more work with clients who have ‘special projects’ – one-off critical assets, or components of an unusual shape or size or weight that are needed as part of a wider programme of work. As demands for efficiency grow, the solution is often greater capability at the same location. We’re being asked to consult on and deliver larger, taller, wider critical assets, into the same tight spaces. We’re also working with a number of clients who have niche needs – very specific, high value or unusual asset movements – and we expect that demand to increase. To service that need, we’ve invested heavily in additional lines of SPMTs and support steel work, and the Enerpac system is going to deliver even more in terms of the one-off, innovative solutions for which we’re now known.”
The Enerpac system will arrive in Q1 of 2023, reflecting Osprey’s timeline for expansion to service the needs of special projects’ clients. Simon continues: “Having this specialist equipment in-house gives our teams the hands-on experience to innovate, to deliver the right solutions for special projects that can reduce costs without taking shortcuts on health and safety, or schedules.”
