Some of our references from previous projects can be seen here.

Some of our previous work as documented below.

Client - Transaero Engineering Ireland

Location - Shannon Co. Clare

Duration - 16hrs



The machine at the heart of our operation is a Liebherr 924 Multi Attachment Material Handler



The machine can change its attachments in less than a minute making it versatile and efficient.

Above shows the cleaver shear attachment, which can shear material in a controlled operation from the protected cab of the machine.

Below, shows the changeover to the grab attachment for moving and loading material.



Rusal Aughinish Ltd

Aughinish Island

Co. Limerick



The project involved the removal of an existing structure on the jetty at the Rusal Aughinish site in Limerick.

The structure was a redundant loader used to load the waiting ships of the product produced at the plant.


The pieces of the structure removed by crane took place in between live equipment, port activities and a ship being loaded in the background.




Once lowered to ground level, the piece is removed off site on a trailer for further processing.



All parts of the structure were dismantled in a carefully planned and precisely controlled operation to get them to ground level, and subsequently off site.



The project was completed on time, and in budget, in a difficult working environment surrounded by live equipment, to the clients satisfaction
