Utilities Transport

The utilities transport sector represents a major focus area for Richard Lester Transport. We work all over the UK and into Europe providing transport & lifting solutions to the oil, gas, water and electricity industries. Our modern fleet of specialist vehicles, coupled with our flexible approach have all contributed to make Richard Lester Transport the first choice service provider for many of the major utilities organisations.

Freight in the utilities sector is often either big, heavy or both, so the equipment required to transport and lift this to what is often difficult and isolated locations repeatedly means that the use of our lorry loaders is the ideal solution. We have manoeuvred robust power generators, water tanks, cable drums and over-sized winches as well as ultra-sensitive wind turbine components, including blades, nacelles, towers and foundations.

The grouping of our low loaders together with our lifting ability has delivered a positive effect to many of our clients. It has enabled them to receive a cost effective solution to what can be expensive crane hire. This solution works on numerous utility projects from pumping station and treatment works maintenance, medium to high voltage primary and transmission substation construction and refurbishment to wind farm construction and commissioning along with many other utility contracts.
