Northern Marine Services (Scotland) Ltd Marine Lifting and Inspection

Linkspan recovery

NMS were contracted to provide a safe and efficient solution to recover an estimated 150t linkspan ramp that had suffered hydraulic failure and collapsed on one side. The location meant that there were significant restrictions placed on NMS with regard to ground loadings and also what type of machines could be used.

NMS utilised a strand jack solution using known strong points to take the ramp weight so as not to exceed any of the weight limits placed by the engineers with regard to equipment that could be used.

By utilising the strand jacks the linkspan was recovered and secured safely, within schedule and budget while not overstressing any of the surrounding quayside.

NMS are able to provide bespoke solutions to your project needs often resulting in quicker, safer and more cost efficient solutions than those traditionally offered.

"I’ve worked with NMS for a fair few years now, and I cannot speak highly enough of the team. They are friendly, helpful and professional at all times, with no job being too big or too small. I get a lot of weird and wonderful requests in the shipping world, and NMS’s experience and extensive background in the industry has helped me on countless occasions."

James McKenzie - Ships Agency Team Leader from GAC Services (UK) Ltd.

"In a business where we are literally asked for anything and everything you can think of no matter how obscure, We make Alasdair and the team at NMS one of first port of calls. This is down to their tenacity to get what we require when we require. “Team NMS” aren’t just a trusted supplier, they’re an extra member of our team and more importantly looked upon as friends. "

Barry Mitchell - Managing Director at 3Point Procurement Limited.

"NMS’ highly professional and thorough monitoring of operations, expert advice on lifting practices and timely reporting were an invaluable addition to MOWEL’s efforts as responsible client to ensure that the principal contractor and its subcontractor’s activities were conducted safely and in full compliance with UK health and safety legislation and good industry practice. I recommend NMS for any such surveillance of heavy lifting and marine activities and thank the team for their continued contribution towards the safe construction on the Moray East windfarm."

Martin Shaw - T&I Manager at Moray East
