Environmental sustainability is one of the biggest challenges of our generation

As well as ensuring our own activities are carried out in the most responsible way, we prioritise the work of industries that strive for sustainable delivery and recycling of resources.

Cadman Cranes is a trusted name within the Renewable Energy, Power Generation, and Battery Storage sectors, and we have an active involvement in providing a safe and reliable mobile crane hire service to renewable energy projects across the United Kingdom.

In conjunction with our Achilles UVDB accreditation, we work with industry leading power suppliers to ensure a continued supply of energy to the nation.

Problem solvers and solution providers for the UK’s renewable energy sector

Working across many of the UK’s major conventional power stations, nuclear power stations and onshore/offshore wind farms, we have ensured that lifting needs have been delivered in a safe, precise and efficient manner to ensure any downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.

Our goal is to dominate the crane hire industry as problem solvers and solution providers, utilising unique machinery and expertly trained operators to deliver an unrivalled service.

We have invested heavily (and continue to do so) in the most up-to-date and modernised mobile cranes along with specialist equipment to tackle the most demanding challenges presented within the renewables sector. Our range of tank tracked pick-and-carry Compact Crawler Cranes have proved essential in the management of hard to reach solar farms where standard mobile cranes are just unable to perform.

We are striving to become your first port of call for all renewable lifting requirements and will endeavour to assist where possible.

  • On shore mobile crane support services to multi-billion-pound offshore wind farms
  • Plant installations at major green power stations
  • Electrical distribution at solar farms
  • Residential, commercial, and industrial solar panel projects
  • Installation and maintenance works at bio-gas facilities

Case Study

Danish company Eltronic Wind Solutions were commissioned to make adjustments to the main boom of the Seajacks Leviathan wind farm installation vessel whilst it was docked in Harwich.

Find out how we provided 160 and 100 tonne cranes to work alongside 2no 70 metre mobile elevated working platforms with the addition of fork lifts, plant mats, site supervision and third party inspection.

Case Study

Working for one of the leading global renewable energy specialists at a Solar Farm in Norfolk, we used our innovative Compact Crawler Crane, the ‘Thunderbird’, to overcome a challenge that no other crane company could solve.

We were challenged with lifting, tracking and installing a number of 6-tonne solar transformers 1-mile across a muddy field – a serious feat!

I would like to thank you for the professional manner you provided for my lifting documentation and enquiries.
