ALE has transported wind energy components across a challenging 1,000 km route to the Rom Klao wind farm in Mukdahan, eastern Thailand.
ALE was contracted for the full-service package including transportation, craneage and installation (TCI) of 13 wind turbines. With a hub height of 162 m, these are the tallest wind turbines operational in Southeast Asia, said ALE.
The company utilised its local routing and engineering expertise, and invested in specialist transportation and installation equipment, such as RA4 tower clamps and a new K1650L tower crane, to successfully complete the job.
“This is a complex scope of work and route to be undertaken. The new tower clamps enabled us to overcome the large diameters of the tower sections and reduce the travelling height to pass under the restrictions on route. Combined with the tower crane, our equipment and methodology has driven project efficiency,” said ALE’s project manager, Matt Thomson.
