ALE opens in China

October 26 - ALE has opened its first branch in Tianjin, China, as part of a general expansion of its footprint throughout Asia.

Jeff Lee, country manager China, said: "We have been operating and executing projects in China for many years, focusing on transportation and load-out services. We made the decision to invest in a permanent base in the port city of Tianjin to better service the Chinese developing global EPC contractors, the existing offshore markets, and expand our business development opportunities throughout the country."

Bomesc Offshore Company Limited recently awarded the global heavy lift specialists the contract to design, weigh, and provide the site transportation and load-out operations of 68 structural steel modules with a total weight of 49,618 tonnes, including various pieces of operational equipment. The modules are bound for the Wheatstone LNG Plant in Australia and the project is expected to complete in February 2016.

In a separate development, ALE recently received a 'Ground Hero Zero' award from Shell for its safety efforts during the super lift activities for the Malikai Project, which saw ALE jack-up the Malikai Topside to a height of 40 m, before skidding the topside a distance of 90 m whilst at this elevation.

The general manager of ALE's Malaysia branch, Roberto Radicella, received the award on behalf of ALE's project manager Edwin Blösser who coordinated the super lift activities.
