Osprey’s specialist logistics do, by their nature, provide our clients with a unique combination of equipment and expertise. But it’s not just about having access to heavy-lift resources or transport – it’s about having the insights to use that equipment in new, innovative ways to solve your logistics challenge.

Our teams have the experience to deliver that unexpected value. Sometimes taking a novel approach for a common sense solution, sometimes creating a completely new way to move your assets from A to B, via land or sea. We call it the Osprey Way of Working.

When you choose Osprey, you get full access to the (mostly in-house) equipment we’ve added to our inventory of the last 25 years. And through our partnerships, we can bring in any other equipment as needed – or draw from our experience and build a better, bespoke version, ourselves. Put that all together, and you can see what a difference equipment AND expertise will make to your project.


Our teams engineer and manage project-specific lifting solutions of all kinds, onshore and off, and across country – here in the UK and overseas.

From the first enquiry or invitation to get involved in a project, through to site visits and surveys, the actual engineering solution, lift calculations and the lift itself … we’ll be prioritising QHSE; minimising risk; reducing costs and adding unexpected value.

We have an in-house fleet of SPMTs, jacks, skids and lifts, plus some of the heaviest mobile cranes in the UK – and we’ve used this heavy-lift equipment in innovative ways, many times over. Read more, in our Success Stories.


Whether we’re taking your assets from factory to foundation, or from a near-site to a final location for installation, we will find the right combination of equipment for use in each project.

It may be a combination of heavy-lift cranes and barges; it might be hydraulic platforms and skids; we never take specialist logistics for granted – every project is an opportunity to share in our previous experience and deliver more value into your bottom line. What we do cuts costs and time, not corner.

We remove risk by managing the whole project, customs work, permits, surveys, agency relationships – as well as the engineering and the lift itself. Our fleet of onshore equipment options continues to grow as we add bespoke items to our inventory, and our onshore-to-offshore work benefits from our multi-disciplined teams’ approach to finding the best solution. It’s about working better, together, to deliver your assets safely, smoothly and efficiently.


We’ve been working offshore – lifting, moving, and installing critical assets – for 25 years. Osprey has a marine heritage (and an inventory of ocean-going and inland-waterway equipment) that lets us provide the broadest proposition for clients working at – or under – sea.

Whether we’re meeting you mid-Atlantic with a cable carousel at short notice, or involved in the early-stage planning to ship windfarm components or energy assets to the North Sea … our teams will draw on their insights to ensure the right combination of equipment is available to deliver on time and on budget.
