Midland Pallet Trucks, a provider of high-quality manual handling equipment including pallet trucks, manual stacker trucks and lift tables, is celebrating its relationship with Safelift Offshore Ltd, an oil industry onshore and offshore supplier by providing tough manual handling equipment able to cope with the demands of arduous environments.
Safelift Offshore recently procured 18 x 2-tonne pallet trucks, 36 x 2.5-tonne pallet trucks and specialist stainless steel pallet trucks constructed using none corrosive materials from Midland Pallet Trucks. The large order has left the mainland and is now situated on the Deep Arctic supply ship currently located in the North Sea.
The 12-year-old vessel is tasked with providing offshore support and has a gross tonnage of 18640, with many crew members to help it carry out its vital work in the North Sea and around the Scottish coast.
The challenging environment – which includes harsh winds, sea spray and demanding conditions – calls for access to robust manual handling equipment impervious to corrosion and rust. Midland Pallet Trucks specialist solutions are made from AISI304 grade stainless steel. They can be trusted by crew members of the Deep Arctic who need to move machinery, parts and general loads around the ship with ease.
“We are proud to be able to serve the needs of the Deep Arctic offshore vessel thanks to our sturdy range of pallet trucks designed for the most challenging of conditions,” said Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks.
“Many of our products offer corrosion-resistant materials, but having so many of our trucks operating out at sea is a testament to their robust quality and first-rate manufacturing.”
