Wollongong crane hire services

A group of men working besides the rail

The name ‘Wollongong’ is believed to derive from the Aboriginal word ‘woolyungah’, meaning ‘five islands’. The Illawarra area was originally inhabited by the Dharawal people and they remain the Traditional Custodians of the land.

Today, Wollongong and its surrounding region are a thriving hub of commercial industries that support the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Australians. These industries are in careful balance with the unique local environment – from stunning beaches to breathtaking mountain ranges.

Two Way Cranes is proud to be part of the community, offering Wollongong crane hire services across the entire Illawarra. Sash Vujic, Project Manager, discusses some of the current partnerships we have and the expert material handling services we provide.

Holcim Australia

Holcim is a global leader in building solutions. They have a focus on developing innovative, low-carbon products that generate lower emissions. Their Australian operations include quarries, batching plants, manufacturing and corporate offices. Many vehicles from the Two Way Cranes fleet are employed at their local quarries. Sash continues:

“We do a lot of work for Holcim… both at Albion Park and their new Lynwood Quarry up at Marulan.

We use all types of cranes at Holcim… everything from our 20 and 40 tonne Frannas, as well as our 55, 90 and 250 tonne Liebherr cranes.

We are involved in all shutdown planning, maintenance and critical breakdown repairs. We are lifting crushers, feeders, screens and replacing conveyor belts across Holcim sites to keep their plants running.”

BlueScope Illawarra

There have been steelworks in the Illawarra for over a century. And while various corporate entities were involved in the industry throughout that time, BlueScope became a stand-alone steel company in 2002 after separating from BHP. The Port Kembla Steelworks is the largest of the company’s global operations and currently produces 2.6 million tonnes of raw steel each year.

Two Way Cranes works directly with BlueScope and we are proud of our dedicated service.

“We’ve had a lot of our cranes work at BlueScope and with our current fleet we are able to provide a variety of services, including maintenance and break down repairs. It is an important partnership for Two Way Cranes.”

Rail industry

We also work closely with the rail industry in the Illawarra region. Sash outlines the type of lifting operations we complete:

“We are under contract with Transport for Tomorrow to undertake railway station upgrades between Mortdale in Sydney and Kiama on the South Coast.

This involves all the platform extensions, structural steel and poles, to name a few. It’s an exciting project to be involved in and a significant infrastructure investment for the area.

We also work with Taylor Rail here at Unanderra. They provide rail maintenance and construction services across the national rail sector.

We load and unload their tampers and regulators onto trucks for transportation across the state. These are the machines that carry out repairs on the tracks on our rail system.”

The Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) is a key exporting facility that services the southern and western coalfields of New South Wales.
