Industry heavyweights to lighten the load for water companies across the UK

Posted: Wednesday 25th January 2017

Inlet Works specialists M&N Electrical & Mechanical Services Ltd announce a new arrival to their Portland headquarters that will enable them to provide further service benefits to water companies across their wastewater treatment operations.

To remove reliance on 3rd party involvement in the lifting and transport of Inlet Works equipment they have invested in a vehicle capable of delivering the most extensive lifting and haulage capabilities available to the market.

Alongside an already impressive selection of multi-purpose vehicles, this addition to the fleet enhances the company's 24/7 year round servicing and maintenance operations, alongside delivery and installation of new Inlet Works equipment across the UK.

With the ability to offer lift capacities of 140 tonnes/metre, M&N elected to combine the impressive power to weight ratio of an Effer 1405 crane with the substantial 450bhp power of a Scania lorry in a new purpose built state-of-the-art vehicle.

As one of the UK's leading commercial vehicle bodybuilders & truck mounted crane installers, Martin Williams of Hull were commissioned by M&N to bring these two essential elements together and effect modifications to the chassis and on-board controls that would provide flexibility and stability in the most challenging operational environments.

The purpose built chassis supports a crane that can comfortably deliver contracted lifts to an impressive 780Kg at 36 metres, and is designed to perform where space is limited and the jib or winch needs be placed at a significant height/distance.

Capable of transporting loads of up to 10 tonnes, this exciting addition to the operational resources of the company packs an impressive punch that is sure to prove a flexible resource to water companies throughout the UK.

M&N's general manager Stuart Spinney who spearheaded the project commented:

"This is an exciting addition to our lifting and transport capabilities. We've worked to provide a specialist vehicle that's cutting edge in every aspect, from fuel efficiency to lifting demanding loads in tight spaces.

Clearly our ability to deliver these high performance tasks gives a greater benefit to our customers. It enables us to respond to the most demanding briefs without any reliance on 3rd parties, saving time and money and giving us full control over the process."
