Solar, Renewable And EPC

We are very experienced in the lifting, removal and installation for the Ground Mounted Solar and Renewable Energy Industry.
We realise with this industry that when a piece of equipment like a transformer fails, this needs to be safely removed, transported for repair and re-installed as quickly as possible and due to the nature of where a solar farm is located the ground conditions are usually very poor.
This is where our experience is invaluable, quickly planning and executing the task required minimising down time for the customers site.

Our Services

We realise every job is different and some require bespoke lifting equipment to ensure a safe lift. So after an on site survey has been carried out we are able to select the appropriate equipment needed to safely carry out the lift. So if you have something that requires lifting and transporting you can rest assured that it will be carried out safely and on time.

Not all items of freight can be lifted and loaded safely using a forklift or it may be the case that you do not have the means to load or unload at your premises whatever the case Forrest Industrial Limited will select and supply the correct Hiab Lorry or lifting equipment to carry out the operation you require.

Whether the job is big or small it is always handled with the same care and passion. We are very proud of our reputation of being professional, reliable and always on time as our customer testimonials show.
