Netherlands-based Royal Wagenborg has set up a joint venture to supply crane and transport services in the Middle East.

Under the alliance with Suhail Bahwan Group in Oman, the newly formed Bahwan Wagenborg Heavylift & Oilfield Services LLC will operate Scheuerle conventional platform trailers and heavy duty prime movers with an initial capacity of about 700 tonnes, among other equipment, says the company.

It will also offer a fleet of Liebherr and Terex Demag heavy crawler cranes, ranging from 400 to 750 tonnes capacity.

Bahwan Wagenborg will operate from its base near the Port of Sohar, while its head office will be based in Muscat. Its range of services will include heavy lift and transportation, rig moving and management services, shipping services and oilfield management services.

The company's main activities will be in the oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, food & beverage and construction industries.

A team of heavy transport and lift engineers will be based at Bahwan Wagenborg's Sohar premises.
