We believe Osprey is the UK’s foremost heavy lifting team, and our teams are ready to help plan and provide the most complex, fully-engineered heavy lifting and installation solutions. You can meet some of our Heavy Lifting team here.

From motorway bridges – lifted and installed as single components – to tunnel borers, wind turbines, locomotives and modular components of all sizes for any civil construction projects … we have the engineering and project planning expertise you need.

We also have the UK’s largest SPMT and heavy lift crane fleet, port services, and specialist partner transport at our disposal (and yours). Mobile cranes, lift system, jacks, skids – a full inventory of owner-operated lifting equipment. This access to the right kit makes every project possible while our way of working makes every project a success.


It’s about working better, together.

If you need permits, detailed project plans, route planning, safety management, project scheduling and design, and more – we believe our combination of expertise and equipment is what you’re looking for. We’ve built those relationships for you.

We also have global reach through our port services team, and specialist, local capability through our heavy haulage partners, Allelys Heavy Haulage Ltd. We can offer everything from straightforward crane hire to complex onshore / offshore logistics, plus fully-engineered contract heavy-lifting and installation services, anywhere in the world. And if we don’t have a heavy lifting solution today, we will create one for you tomorrow.
