ALE marks Kazakh milestone

December 14 - ALE has completed the delivery of cargo for the third phase of the Atyrau Refinery expansion project in Kazakhstan.

The first phase of the refinery expansion project was completed in 2006, while the second phase drew to a close in 2011.

For the third phase of the expansion project, ALE was contracted to deliver 50 units of heavy and oversize cargo, with pieces measuring up to 35 m long by 8.8 m wide, and weights reaching up to 315 tonnes.

The cargo arrived into Atyrau River Port on eight shallow draft barges within a three-month period. To comply with road restrictions ALE used over 70 axles of conventional trailers and a number of heavy tractor units to deliver the cargo from the port to the site.

The equipment was transported by road through the suburbs of Atyrau, which meant that ALE had to conduct movement during the early hours of Sunday mornings with the support of road police, which arranged the closure of central city roads.

As well as delivering all cargo to the site, ALE used its 750-tonne capacity crawler crane to install nine heavy vessels over a five-month period at the refinery.

"This project is the biggest we have secured for the region, providing a comprehensive range of services and equipment," said ALE's general manager in Kazakhstan, Ali Yoldashov. "By providing the road surveys, transport arrangements, route alterations, transportation approvals and liaising with the local authorities, we could provide the turnkey solution to ensure the project schedule was met."
