ALE completes turret project

ALE has completed the weighing, transport and load-out of a turret mooring system, weighing 3,702 tonnes, in Johor, Malaysia.

ALE, which began the project in March 2015, used 176 axle lines of SPMTs to weigh the mooring system, as part of a project to transfer the turret to South Korea where it was subsequently installed onto a ship's hull.

For the weighing operation, ALE installed two manometer gauges, which measure differences in pressure, on each of the four sets of hydraulic suspension, to increase the accuracy of the results.

The turret support structure, weighing 1,265 tonnes, and an SAS gantry weighing 330 tonnes, were transported by SPMTs from the fabrication workshop to the assembly area.

The fully assembled mooring system, comprising the support structure, SAS gantry and turret head, was loaded onto NYK Bulk & Project Carriers' barge Yamatai, for onward transportation to South Korea for final installation onto the main hull.

The project concluded in December 2017.
