ALE adds second Mega Jack

July 31 - ALE has started construction of a second Mega Jack 800, an 800-tonne capacity jacking system that was first launched in 2014 as part of ALE's Innovation Series.

The Mega Jack 800, like the first system, will have four towers that are 12 m high, each with a capacity of 800 tonnes.

ALE's technical director Ronald Hoefmans, explained: "A second system will not only be able to fulfil the demand, but the way it is built will give us the capabilities to jack-up bigger modules using up to eight towers and the possibility of putting two towers side by side with starter beams to give up to 1,600-tonnes capacity."

According to ALE, the system has been used for the jack-up operations of bridges and offshore modules.

Construction of the second system began in the first half of 2017, and is expected to be completed in August for its first job in the UK, where it will be used to jack-up a bridge.
