Cats fly with Osprey

UK-based Osprey Heavy Lift has made a second visit to the Isle of Wight to assist Wight Shipyard Company relocate a catamaran, weighing 72 tonnes, from its fabrication shed to the River Medina.

In a previous project, SPMTs were used to relocate the vessel Red Jet 7, weighing 112 tonnes, to the nearby quay.

Two of Osprey's mobile cranes – an 800-tonne capacity LTM1800 and 550-tonne capacity LG1550 – were then used in a tandem lift to lower the ship into the River Medina.

The Red Jet 7 entered service in July 2018.

For the most recent project, it was initially thought a tandem lift solution would be required. However, in conjunction with the lifting beam manufacturer, Osprey engineered a bespoke lifting arrangement, which enabled the catamaran to be lifted using a single crane.
