Bahamas Industrial Technologies has purchased six rough terrain cranes worth $2.5 million to assist the Grand Bahama Shipyard with operations over the next five years.

During this period, five of the cranes will be permanently stationed at the Grand Bahama Shipyard with Bahamas Industrial Technologies assuming responsibility for maintenance.


The 25-tonne and 70-tonne rough terrain cranes are specifically designed for pick-and-carry operations on difficult off-road terrain. At the shipyard, the cranes will be used for general lift and carry jobs around the yard, which accommodates vessels from the cruise, commercial and off-shore segments of the maritime industry.

For Bahamas Industrial Technologies, the five-year contract will mean an increase in business and employees.

“We’re going to have to maintain these cranes on a weekly basis,” said Bahamas Industrial Technologies CEO and owner John Hynes. “So, it’s almost daily that we’re going to have these cranes rotating in and out. That’s going to mean more employees for us, and better operations for our company.”

Jack’s Bay Developers, Beacon Land Development, and TGR Design have announced that the development of Jack’s Bay – a luxury property complex and a private club in The Bahamas – will feature a Tiger Woods-designed golf course.

Silver Airways today announced it is continuing to further expand its Florida-Bahamas network by starting new non-stop service between West Palm Beach and Bimini and one-stop service between Tampa and Bimini on April 20, 2017.
