Grove for Trinity House

UK maritime charity Trinity House has taken delivery of a 60 tonne Grove RT765E-2 Rough Terrain crane.

The RT765E-2 is equipped with a 33 metre main boom, plus 17 metre bi-fold swingaway lattice extension. It was delivered by UK dealer Crowland Cranes and replaces an older Grove RT635C Rough Terrain crane.

Prior to delivery, Grove equipped the crane with a special navigation buoy carrier, enabling them to be easily, and safely pick & carried around the quay area. The new crane went straight into operation supporting coastal operations from its location in Harwich.

Trinity House technical services manager Robert Dale said: “Due to the uniqueness of our demands we are very grateful to Crowland Cranes in assisting the selection and purchasing of this crane. Despite having a slightly larger footprint than our old crane, the RT765E-2 offers greater lifting capacity and more importantly enhanced safety features ensuring our operations are conducted using the highest standards of equipment available.”

Trinity House is a charity dedicated to safeguarding shipping and seafarers, providing education, support and welfare to the seafaring community with a statutory duty as a General Lighthouse Authority to deliver a reliable, efficient and cost-effective aids to navigation service for the benefit and safety of all mariners.
