ALE coordinates power project

ALE has lifted 29 modules at the Montgomery County power station construction project in Houston, Texas.

Over the course of four months, ALE lifted and installed modules weighing 200-285 tonnes.

The most complex lift involved the rotation of two heat recovery steam generator modules. Measuring around 30 m x 4 m x 4 m, each module was positioned using two cranes in a tandem lifting procedure.

Key equipment used during the construction process included: three crawler cranes rated at 800 tonnes, 600 tonnes and 250 tonnes lifting capacity; SPMTs; and a jack and slide system – allowing for complex positioning manoeuvres.

The Montgomery County power station will begin operating in 2021.
