First For Island As Firm Invests In Latest Green Technology

Rebel Marine, a leading provider of marine services based in Fishbourne, has invested in two state of the art electric tracked machines.

In a first for the Isle of Wight, the company can now offer a fully electric tracked carrier and tracked compact crane for marine and land-based applications

Both designed and built by Hoeflon in Holland, using the latest battery charging technology, they are fully electric and remote controlled.

The TC1 tracked carrier is only 800mm wide but can carry 1.2 tonnes, ideal for carrying heavy materials such as steel beams through small access doors.

It can get large amounts of equipment to hard to reach places reducing manual handling and improving safe working practices.

The C1E tracked compact crane is 712mm wide extending to 1,100mm when lifting.

It has a lifting capacity of 720kg and can reach a height of 5.6 metres.

It also boasts a winch along with fly jib and head accessories.

A small crane doing some heavy lifting, with pick and carry duties this really is a one of a kind machine.

Both these machines can be manoeuvred in tight spaces ideal for internal construction work. With non-marking rubber tracks they are suitable for use over rough terrain or indoors.

They are both fully electric so if they are indoors there are zero emissions meaning CO2 neutrality and minimal noise.

Both can operate all day on a full charge.

A spokesman for the company said:

“Rebel Marine can now tackle marine construction projects with greater precision and speed.

"Using this cutting edge equipment, tailored to our clients specific needs, enhances our capabilities and solidifies our position as a leader in marine services.”

Within days of arriving on the Island, both machines could be seen in operation replacing a navigation mark off Cowes Parade and drawing
notable interest.
