AGD supplies telescopic crawler crane on hire in the Falkland Islands

11 Nov 2014, 6:08 PM

One of our 70 tons capacity Marchetti telescopic crawler cranes is pictured here working on a barge in the waters just off Port Stanley where it is on hire to Trant Engineering helping to construct a new jetty for the oil & gas exploration industry.

The machine left our yard almost a year ago and has been busy ever since it arrived in the Falkland Islands installing tubes with vibro and impact hammers plus general service crane duties.

AGD are used to working overseas having supplied many machines to all corners of the earth but this is certainly the first time we've ever been to the south Atlantic. This crane has been supplied with an operator as there is a shortage of qualified crane operators on the islands.
