Assembly & Erection

At O’Brien Specialist Crane Services, we offer unparalleled experience to ports and port equipment manufactures. Our project management staff have decades of experience in structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering and have been engaged on numerous port-equipment installation projects including planning, design, assembly, and erection of STS, RMG, RTG, and Dockside cranes along with other cargo handling equipment. O’Brien SCS can also offer maintenance, inspections, and management of existing port equipment.


O’Brien Specialist Crane Services provides assembly and erection services for all crane types and other cargo handling equipment for ports and manufactures across the globe. Complex installation services include, erection of main steel structures, mechanical equipment installation, electrical equipment installation, final testing, and commissioning. Regardless of the complexity involved, we can offer a full turnkey service across all electrical and mechanical engineering requirements. Our international expertise means that we can provide these engineering services in any location around the world.

There are several different approaches when it comes to the delivery of new equipment which are tailored to the individual customers requirements. Previous projects have seen cranes assembled in the final operation position, at remote location within the port and then transferred to the final operation position or assembled away from the port and then delivered in the fully assembled form. O’Brien Specialist Crane Services can work alongside the client and equipment manufacture from initial feasibility, right through until final handover to ensure every aspect of the project is best suited to the specific customer requirements to guarantee a seamless and efficient delivery.

Our industry leading, highly skilled, and motivated assembly teams have an unwavering work ethic, allowing us to deliver all previous assembly projects on time or ahead of schedule, whilst maintaining an uncompromised focus on safety. As a result of our passion, drive, and commitment, we are the preferred contractor for some of the largest names in the container handling industry.

As an international business, O’Brien Specialist Crane Services is committed to providing an integrated portfolio of services, delivering the highest standards of safety, reducing timescales and total costs, and providing a focused and dedicated team to meet these objectives. At O’Brien Specialist Crane Services, we consistently provide safe, cost efficient and timely services to our wide customer base.
