KML have been involved in many craned heavy lift operations for a range of clients and under varied contracts. All projects are undertaken with a detailed lift plan and associated full HSQE documentation. Successful lifts have ranged from construction sections to tidal energy devices and liquid natural gas terminal components
In addition to utilisation of our own assets, we also charter subcontractor vessels and equipment when required. Our own crane barge, BD6074, has a capacity of 150te @ 20m and can be operated quayside as well as offshore. Our flat pontoons can be fitted with a range of crawler cranes to meet most client needs/requirements. KML can also design and supply rigging specific to the individual requirements of each item lifted.
KML has trained and competent staff who have extensive experience and hold offshore crane operator OPITO-compliant certificates, CPCS Blue card qualifications as Appointed Person Lifting Operations and slinger/signaller qualifications. The equipment suitability, condition and upkeep is of paramount importance to KML who work strictly to its ISM code standard Vessel Management system and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management system.
