ALE lifts for Karbala

ALE has deployed 24 cranes, with a lifting capacity ranging from 50 tonnes to 1,600 tonnes, for the Karbala Refinery project in Iraq. 

ALE was contracted to perform more than 350 lifts of refinery components over a one year period. In addition to its extensive fleet of cranes, ALE deployed a number of conventional trailers, as well as 48 axle lines of SPMTs for the onsite movement of heavy cargo.

Alberto Pittaluga, ALE’s director in Iraq, explained: “For this project we were keen to optimise the project schedule as much as possible, selecting the best equipment for the job and maximising mobilisation times. 

“Within just one month, the cranes were shipped, transported to site and assembled, which is a huge achievement for everyone involved and demonstrates our commitment to our client’s timeframes.”

The Karbala Refinery project, based in the South Karbala province, commenced in 2016 and the heavy lift operations are scheduled for completion in April 2019.
