Alan Faulds

Faulds joined the company in June following eight months with virtual crane rental business MyCrane. Prior to that he worked with Windhoist in Scotland where was head of the plant department. He began his crane career in 2010 with Mammoet in southern Africa, before moving to Dubai as operations manager covering the Middle East and Africa. After eight years with Mammoet, he left to join Sarens as manager of site operations at the Tengizchevroil (TCO) project in Kazakhstan, leaving for Windhoist the following year.

Speaking of his new appointment Faulds said: “It struck me that the wellbeing of the workforce is first and foremost in the minds of Osprey’s senior leadership team, and that makes such a difference on site. We have a highly motivated, valued team of very intelligent individuals who perform as a great team, I look forward to what the future holds.”

“The growth and respect the company is experiencing is no accident. As an approach, early contractor engagement delivers so much value into any project - it’s really only by talking to technical specialists who understand where to find savings without cutting corners later in the programme, that you can build in efficiencies with confidence up front.”

Based in Bristol, the Osprey business was established more than 25 years ago and runs several divisions, including Heavy lifting, Port services and Abnormal loads. The mostly Liebherr crane fleet includes a 1,000 tonne rated LTM1800D and 800 tonne LTM1800 cable suspended telescopics, plus a 550 tonne LG1550 and 750 tonne lattice truck cranes. It also runs around 120 Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs).
