BPH Equipment has supplied two cranes to Birse Civils on its Redcar Flood Alleviation Scheme

The work is part of a £30 million project to regenerate the town's seafront.

Approximately 1,000 pre cast concrete units will make up the whole scheme. The new wall will stretch for 2.7 kilometres and is intended to reduce coastal erosion and flood risk for over 1000 properties in Redcar for the next 100 years.

BPH Equipment has supplied two crawler cranes to help assist with the lifting and placement of the precast units.

The two cranes supplied are:

  • KOBELCO 1,800 (180t)
  • KOBELCO 1,350 (135t)

BPH Equipment has also supplied two operators with considerable experience in this type of work.
