Electrical, Controls & Instrumentation (EC&I)

The in-house EC&I department at SCX Special Projects designs complex electrical, controls and instrumentation systems to control and automate specialist cranes and bespoke handling solutions - reliably, accurately and safely.


We've moved stadium roofs and football pitches... even the odd crane!

What could we move for you?

SCX Special Projects has dedicated in-house EC&I and Safety teams to help you get your lifting and mechanical handling projects under complete control.

Or do you have older handling systems that need improved safety and functionality to extend their working life?
