Solutions is now acting as an agent for the charter
of the floating crane “Apache”. The versatile
floating crane barge can be chartered for any job no
matter how small or large. Any long or short term charters
considered and single lifts.
The owner operators supply the fully qualified crew
and if needed the towage to site. Apache can work alongside
a quay or at anchor. Apache is currently rated for lifts
of a maximum of 110 tons. Apache has the capacity to
rotate through 360 degrees and has good boom reach.
The crane has worked on a number of Prestige projects
recently on the South Coast of the United Kingdom. These
include the lifting of the yacht Britannia for full
restoration, construction of the Royal Yacht Squadron
Cowes harbour defence wall.
On another front the crane has been used by harbour
authorities and private landlords for wreck recovery
and wharf side clearances of sunken wrecks and hazards.
This has resulted in the re-opening of wharfs and safer
navigation for vessels. This leads to new revenue for
the port authority’s and landlords in being able
to get an income from previously unusable quaysides,
which are at a premium.
Other lifts have been for various clients including
oil refineries, harbour authorities, ferry companies
and construction of a new pier for the Admiralty in
The cranes owners also have their own flat top barge
33 meters by 17 meters which is also for charter. Pay
loads of 500 ton. The flat barge be chartered with carne
Apache of separately if required.
The owners have worked closely with Blade
Runner Shipping who can provide
self-propelled motorised barges for charter with the
crane or separately.
