Our Underground Team Safely Access Mine Shaft by Mobile Crane

Working closely with Specialist Engineering Services and Bryn Thomas Cranes, one of our underground teams have successfully demonstrated that accessing mine shafts using mobile cranes can now be carried out safely and efficiently. 

Although occasionally carried out when shaft sinking, the use of cranes is rarely carried out at UK mines and never to this depth.
