In October this year we appointed Russell Parker to head up our Western Australian operations and new local office.
As our Western Australian Manager, and lead lift consultant, Russell comes to us with a wealth of experience in heavy lift planning. For 19 years, Russell ran his own company, Prime Crane Services, where he prepared high quality crane and rigging studies to meet rigorous standards required by blue chip clients, including Woodside Energy, BP Australia, BHPBIO and Rio Tinto, to name a few.
Russell’s 40 years’ experience across the full lifecycle of cranes has seen him work from the ground up, starting as a crane operator, then foreman, supervisor, rigger, up to his current role as our lead lift consultant.
Russell has consulted on a range of heavy lift management for major civil infrastructure and mining projects, including Rio Tino’s Silvergrass iron ore mine in the Pilbara region, and Pilgangoora Lithium-Tantalum Project, also in the Pilbara region.
We’ve put Russell’s depth of experience to the test already with several major projects detailed in the next story.
We hope our Western Australian subscribers get to meet Russell soon.
