Specialist Transport

SPMTs (Self-Propelled Modular Transporters)

These can be used for transporting objects such as large bridge sections, transformers, generators and other items that are too large or heavy for conventional transport. Due to their range of combinations, SPMTs can lift and move a wide variety of heavy loads. Modular transporters have enabled engineers to overcome lack of infrastructure onsite and other limitations.

Swept path analysis

Ainscough Crane Hire’s special projects team has access to a range of specialist vehicles, offering cost effective transport solutions to large and heavy objects. Specialist vehicles are available for all sectors including infrastructure, power, industrial, petrochemical, oil and gas, construction and emergency response projects.

As designs get challenged more and more, our extensive vehicle swept path analysis experts offer analysis of the movement and path of different parts of a vehicle when that vehicle is undertaking a turning manoeuvre. Allowing assessment of the implications of a wide variety of vehicle types on design layouts at a very early stage in the design process.

Detailed route surveys

Streamlined heavy transport plans are of ever-more importance to the successful plan of any infrastructure or construction project, as the delivery of oversize and heavy components is key to a project’s critical path.

We are excellently placed to plan and deliver the most efficient route for each project. We will examine regulatory aspects that must be factored into the project and devise a plan that offers a solution to issues around the UK, border and port authority procedures.

We will then coordinate the logistics for each component to ensure that they arrive on time and in the correct order for installation.

In addition to the above services Ainscough Crane Hire Special Projects also offers:

  • Stability calculations
  • Axle loadings
