EnerMech Inks UNIC Mini Crane Deal for UK Offshore Sector

Mechanical services group, EnerMech Ltd, has been awarded the rights for the exclusive sale and hire of GGR Group's UNIC mini cranes to the UK offshore market.

GGR Group is one of Europe's leading suppliers of restricted access lifting equipment and UNIC mini crawler cranes which were originally designed to operate on congested construction sites.

Aberdeen-based EnerMech hope to extend the distributorship arrangement to cover other offshore regions where the company has a presence.

Small and portable, UNIC cranes are self-propelled and can be quickly assembled in a variety of configurations, making them ideal for accessing areas on offshore installations and platforms outwith the coverage of normal crane equipment.

The distributorship also covers GGR's Airlift series of spider cranes -- the world's first fully ATEX certified compliant compressed-air powered spider cranes, suitable for use in potentially explosive Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas.

EnerMech's director for cranes and lifting, John Morrison, said, "This is an important development for EnerMech and assures our clients that we can provide the most technologically advanced equipment available on the market.

"UNIC mini cranes are ideal for shutdown work as they negate the need for building load bearing scaffolding and we can see their application during platform decommissioning.

"This agreement gives us sole distributor and dealer rights for GGR's crane range for the UK offshore and oil and gas market. We are looking forward to working with GGR and are keen to extend the relationship in to other geographic regions."

GGR's Airlift series of spider cranes are compact but have the capacity and reach of much larger machines with advanced features, including full safe load indicators, working area limitation and radio remote control with digital feedback.
