ALE jib set for mid-2017 job

November 24 - ALE is progressing with the fabrication of a new heavy-duty jib for its AL.SK190 and AL.SK350 cranes.

The new jib will have a length of up to 100 m and a 3,400-tonne lifting capacity. The modular design allows for assembly in multiple configurations. It is possible to transport the component parts in containers in order to reduce transportation costs.

All the major jib components are being fabricated by European manufacturers and are currently in production. The first contract for the jib is planned for mid-2017 and will involve the lifting of modules weighing 3,000 tonnes. The AL.SK350 crane will be in a 37m configuration with a 113 m main mast.

ALE's construction manager Tim van As, stated: "We recognised the client's demand to lift heavier and higher so utilised our in-house research and development team to design a jib with the versatility and capacity required. The build is progressing well, we are on track with the construction schedule and we expect the jib to be built by the end of 2016."
