Port and Marine
Seward Wyon has a strong history of working in the Port and Marine sector. This proud tradition is fuelled by the fact that the founders of the company, which was created in 1981, originated from the British crane manufacturing and heavy lift industry. As this once-proud industry declined over many years, more experienced crane engineers became available and were recruited by Seward Wyon to continue working with cranes and lifting equipment.
Seward Wyon Engineers are available to travel at short notice anywhere in the world to assess damage to cranes and equipment for insurance purposes and produce detailed reports, liaise with clients and help reduce costly downtime, mobilise teams of riggers, fitters and welders to carry out temporary repairs or return equipment to full working condition. This total in-house service package has earned us an enviable reputation within the industry and gained us an impressive list of clients around the world.
Our Ports Site Services have carried out many complex projects involving major modifications to ship to shore cranes and dockside cranes, including increasing the working heights of five 1000 tonne (self weight) ship to shore container cranes by a massive five metres. This project involved designing and building the specialist 1000 tonne jacking rigs needed to lift the cranes, engineering and controlling the entire process.
Our engineering team possess a wealth of experience and are able to undertake complex multi-disciplinary turnkey contracts, plant upgrades and refurbishment projects embracing mechanical, structural, electrical and hydraulic engineering disciplines.
