ALE towers up with Kroll


ALE has expanded its fleet with three Krøll K1650L tower cranes.

ALE expects the cranes, which are designed to work at higher wind speeds than conventional cranes, to deliver cost and time savings for clients in the wind energy sector. 



The freestanding cranes feature a 70 m boom, which ALE says reduces the amount of land that needs to be cleared and prepared prior to lifting, reducing costs and environmental impact. The cranes can also be transported partially rigged, reducing the relocation time;
the low counterweight, increased visibility and quick assembly functionality optimises overall project efficiency, says ALE.

Danilo Viappiani, regional engineering manager for ALE, said: "We work closely with our clients to understand potential challenges in the future, such as increased hub heights or heavier components, and where there is the opportunity to make time and cost savings." 



He added that the tower crane solution has lifting capabilities like no other on the market. 



The cranes are currently being deployed at Wind Energy Holding's Thepharak wind farm project in Thailand, which includes the installation of 150 wind turbine generators up to a height of 156.5 m.
