Crane procurement for wind turbine installations must be organized by a specialized team of experts who know what cranes are available and the implication of having the right crane model on site.
Generally speaking, cranes can be categorized considering different technical characteristics:
- Crawler vs wheels:
- Standard vs narrow track:
- Telescopic vs lattice boom:

Main Crane Procurement & Operation
We provide crane procurement assistance for your wind, solar, or run-of-river project. Our services range from preparing specifications to complete assistance, including bid evaluation, design review, quality assurance audits, and accessory services. We work with the project owner to develop site-specific, and other, requirements tailored to the project’s needs.
Operating a crane can be a high-risk activity at a construction site. Having a well-trained lift team can help mitigate, and eliminate, some of the risks associated with using cranes. The team at EPiK Energy will remove the risk, ensure safe work procedures and perform lifts based on industry best practices.
Auxiliary Crane Procurement & Operation
Support cranes are sometimes an overlooked aspect of crane procurement for wind energy projects. With a diverse list of crane companies, we look at the needs of the project, the value of the specific crane to support the project, and procure it to ensure that your project completes on time and on budget. With the same attention to detail, the team at EPiK Energy mobilizes and demobs the crane fleet that will be the right crane, at the right rate, every time.
Crane Mobilization Optimization & Management
Onsite mobilization of crane assets requires acute attention to the details. Walking the crane into position, and ensuring the right lifting protocol and equipment are available is the key to our success. With over 20 years of crane operation and mobilization experience, we can ensure the safely performed crane hoisting best practices for your wind energy project.
Crane Mat Supply & Management
Mats and ground support systems require an evaluation prior to onsite setup. This is true for safety reasons, damage to fields, natural habitat considerations, and equipment damage. Matting should be in the crane owner, engineer, and manufacturer’s recommendations after the crane has identified the Ground Bearing Pressure (GBP) and exclusion zones.
This specialized knowledge requires the combination of the above recommendations as well as tried, tested, and true experience on a wind farm in a variety of geological situations.
Trust EPiK Energy to provide you with a safe, correct, and cost-effective crane mat solution for onsite hoisting requirements.
