Heavy-lift specialist ALE has completed load-out of four continuous catalyst regeneration modules on Batam Island, Indonesia.
The complex project required careful positioning of four CCR module weighing between 114 and 362 tonnes each. To complete the move ALE relied on 48 axle lines of self-propelled modular transports to transport the modules to a waiting 282-class barge before performing loaded out and ballasting with 12 mounted deck ballast pumps.
“As well as the sea-fastening design, ALE also provided the sea transportation studies. ALE used standard dragline boards as grillages for the load-out of modules A and B,” an ALE spokesperson said.
UK-based ALE 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.
