OMHL is a project engineering company that has worked closely with Forth Ports on a number of large-scale projects in the renewables and decommissioning sectors. Based in Dundee, its wide range of experience and fleet of specialist heavy lift plant - including the UK’s largest permanent quayside crane - will work across Forth Ports’ Scottish operations, including Leith, Grangemouth, Rosyth and Dundee. OMHL will continue to be led by managing director Alex Fyfe who will work directly with David Webster, the newly-appointed director of energy for Forth Ports. Fyfe said: “This is an exciting new chapter for OMHL as we combine our skills and expertise with the broader Forth Ports business - we have a strong relationship with the Forth Ports team that we look forward to developing further in the fast-growing offshore renewables market.” Charles Hammond, group chief executive of Forth Ports, said: “Today’s news is another important strategic move for Forth Ports as we secure our place in the offshore renewables sector, following the recent announcement of the ScotWind leasing round. “We are investing significantly in Dundee and Leith to create an attractive offering for offshore renewables which will support the country’s transition to net zero. “The acquisition of OMHL, coupled with that of Targe Towing, places Forth Ports in a strong position to play a leading role in supporting Scotland’s offshore renewables future.” Webster added: “With the OMHL team coming on board, we can now offer a complete, integrated service solution for offshore renewables customers, anywhere within our ports business in Scotland, from marine towage right through to quayside cranage and laydown land.”
