Project cargo firm ALE has completed transportation of nearly 3,000 tonnes of breakbulk equipment as part of a three-year project on Sakhalin Island, Russia.
The project involved offload, transportation and installation of drilling and process modules in adverse weather conditions, with the modules carried overland a distance of 12 kilometers using 182 axle lines of SPMT and link-span bridges.
“We were working in a challenging environment, as the job site is remote with limited resources and infrastructure, as well as in demanding weather conditions. For this reason, we deployed an experienced team onto the site to execute our contracted scope,” said Tommy Quik, project manager for ALE.
ALE is headquartered in Staffordshire, UK, and provides heavy-lift services for a range of industries. The firm has more than 30 regional offices around the world and focuses on heavy-lift projects in oil and gas, civil, nuclear, offshore, renewables, petrochemical, ports, marine, minerals and metals and mining.
