ALE completes test run

UK-headquartered heavy lift and transport engineering provider ALE has lifted three huge modules at a project in Texas, USA, using its AL.SK350 crane.

The three modules, which had a combined weight of 6,614 tonnes, were lifting using ALE’s 354,000-tonne/metre load moment ring crane. The crane was rigged with a 124 m main boom, a 49 m ballast radius, along with a heavy winch system and 4,000 tonnes of ballast.

The final lift, a 2,234-tonne living quarter module, took place this month. ALE completed the first lift in December 2018, as HLPFI reported here.

“By using the latest technologies, we could carry out the lifts on schedule and safely, while minimising disruption to the rest of the busy site,” explained Ronnie Adams, ALE’s senior project manager.

All three modules have been fitted in Ingleside, Texas as part of a trial run ahead of their permanent installation in Israel. The modules will be removed and transported to the final project site in the second quarter of 2019.
