ALE Heavylift in two Iberian moves

November 9 - Two significant heavy lift movements have been undertaken by ALE Heavylift and a subsidiary.

In the first, ALE Heavylift successfully moved a 148 tonne stripper, measuring 34 m in length and with a diameter of 5.2 m, as well as a fractionator weighing 420.5 tonnes measuring 58 m in length. The consignment was moved from Sines harbour to Sines Refinery, Portugal.

Meanwhile, ALE Heavylift Ibérica undertook the skidding transport of a container crane at Barcelona port. The total distance skidded was 70 m.
