Osprey invests in 6-axle SPMT units, increasing fleet capability to more than 100 axle lines. 

Osprey is adding four 6-axle SPMT units to its fleet, with three Z180 PPUs. This latest investment means we can offer more than 100 axle lines that will be based in the UK. The new SPMT units also have solid fill tyres that will offer an increase in axle loadings.

This investment means clients have access to an increased number of SPMT axles already based in the UK. In addition, those axles are geared to the sustainability issues that are becoming so important in project management.

Much of the equipment used in specialist logistics is confined to older, less eco-oriented technology. While retro-fitting may be an option in the long term, these new additions to our SPMT fleet are a sign of achievable, forward-thinking – increasing the number of highly capable UK-based axles, with greener credentials defining that expansion. This investment in new SPMTs also helps to minimise our environmental footprint while expanding UK-based capability for clients. The units use AdBlue technology, and the new PPUs are equipped with the latest Euro 5 engines.

Dean Graham, Operations & QHSE Director. “The growth of our SPMT fleet complements our existing full scope of services covering installations, heavy cranes and barge activities – these axles are here, ready to use. AdBlue also reduces engine emissions measurably, which is better for the environment.”

This is another good news story for us. The new units have the green credentials that meet our environmental and sustainability model – an all-important criteria for project managers intent on meeting their own ESG targets.
