Merritts complete Dubai project

Posted onPosted on 24th Apr

Heavy machinery moving and storage specialists Joseph Merritt Group, of Kirkby, has successfully completed a relocation project involving four Engel injection moulding machines on behalf of Polypipe Civils, a leading manufacturer of plastic piping systems.

The project covered six weeks — the first three involved machinery decommissioning, export packing and loading to transport in Dubai, followed by the delivery, installation and recommissioning works in the UK.

The planning phase consisted of Merritts’ project managers performing a site visit in Jebel Ali, Dubai.

Merritts arranged for their mechanical, electrical and rigging personnel to fly out to Dubai. UAE temporary permits to work were obtained for all members of staff involved in the project.

Commenting on the project, Richard Merritt (pictured), managing director of Merritts, said: “Projects like this exemplify the expertise we have in transporting heavy machinery regardless of the location or complexity.

“Due to the varied requirements of the project, I am very proud of the high quality service delivered to the client by our project managers, health and safety team, and on-site operatives.”
