WORLDWIDE HEAVY TRANSPORTATION AND LIFTING
WORLD’S LARGEST LAND BASED CRANE
PERFORMS INAUGURAL LIFTS IN BRAZIL
The world’s largest capacity land based crane, the AL.SK350, has performed its
inaugural lifts in Brazil, using its 4,000t winch system and high speed slew.
ALE is currently using the AL.SK350 crane to lift and install approximately 40 modules,
weighing up to 3,000t, onto the P-74 FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and
Offloading) vessel in the south of Brazil.
The crane was selected by the client as, due to its large capacity, it was the only crane
capable of installing the modules complete and without additional relocation of the
ship’s hull. This has saved the client considerable construction time and money in the
The heaviest module on the project will weigh 3,000t, making it the heaviest
commercial load ever lifted by a land based mobile crane.
Ronnie Adams, Senior Project Manager on site, commented: “The crane is performing
well and exceeding expectations with its high slew speed, in combination with the
4,000t winch system. Despite challenges due to the weather, we have successfully
completed the first campaign ahead of schedule, recognising the engineering
achievements this milestone brings.”
ALE’s AL.SK350 crane has been rigged in its current biggest configuration with 49m
ballast radius and 4,000t ballast. The main boom is a 130m long A-frame design on a
very stable 18m wide base. The crane is equipped with a 4,000t main winch system
and 600t auxiliary quick winch system. For heavier loads up to 5000t a strand jack
lifting system can be installed.
The AL.SK350 crane was launched in 2013 with a lifting capacity of 5,000t and a load
moment of 354,000tm. The AL.SK cranes are also available in AL.SK190 and AL.SK700
configurations, achieving capacities up to 4,300t and 8,000t respectively.
With its 354,000tm load moment capacity, it is the largest capacity crane in the market
by a significant margin and it’s huge lifting capabilities enables clients to construct
equipment for lifting weighing heavier than ever before.
WORLD RECORD JACK-UP: MALIKAI PROJECT WINS BEST INNOVATIVE
ALE has won the ‘Best Innovative Project/Concept’ award for
their performance during the Malikai Project in 2015.
Announced at the Dusit Thani Hotel Dubai on 29 May 2016,
the 7th ‘ShipTek International Maritime’ awards were attended
by 150 professionals from across different sectors. This was one of
18 categories honouring organisations and individuals for industrial
contributions and excellence.
ALE beat stiff competition from three other nominees in the
category to win the ‘Best Innovative Project’ award for jack-up,
skidding and load-out operations during the Malikai Project in
Johor Darul Takzim, Malaysia. During the project, ALE jacked-up the
Topside, weighing 13,600t, 40m high, before skidding the Topside a
distance of 90m whilst at this elevation – making these the world’s
highest jack-up and skidding operations performed on this scale.
ALE mated the Topside with the Hull, then loaded-out the TLP
(Tension Leg Platform).
Taco Vissers, Project Manager/Engineer, said: “We are delighted for
the project to have won this award. This is the first time an operation
like this has ever been attempted. It not only broke the world record
for the highest ever jack-up on this scale, but then to skid the
Topside 90m whilst in the air at 40m, is a major feat of engineering
and sets the bar for heavylifting capabilities across all sectors. All of
the team involved are proud of what has been achieved.”
Shiptek 2016 Awards Committee said: “The Mega Jack system
stood out amongst the entries received and the possibilities that the
system would pose in the industry impressed the judging panel.”

SIEMENS AWARDS UK BRANCH
WITH £43M FOUR-YEAR CRANE
Siemens has awarded a four-year ‘Crane Framework Agreement’
to ALE for the supply and deployment of cranes, specialised
transport equipment and personnel.
The contract is for the period 2016-19, and has a value in
excess of £43m (55m Euros). It covers Siemens’ harbour-based
offshore wind sites in the UK and Germany, and fulfils the
requirements of Siemens’ offshore logistics concept, presented
The work involves onshore heavy lifting, transport and
pre-assembly for offshore wind operations. The contract is
effective from the beginning of June 2016. ALE equipment and
staff will be used in the handling and pre-assembly of imported
towers, nacelles and blades to be used on the Dudgeon offshore
wind park. Where possible, a Ro-Ro process is used, instead
of lifting. This method provides more safety and cost efficiency
when it comes to moving up-to-75-metre-long rotor blades, and
nacelles weighing around 360t.
Clark MacFarlane, Managing Director, Wind Power Division
at Siemens plc, said: “Given the high proportion of the work
covered by this contract that will take place in the UK, we
are delighted to be able to appoint a British supplier with an
international reputation in this field. This contract is a great step
for our development in Hull and the offshore industry in the UK
which is committed to growing the content of offshore wind
farms that is made in the UK.”
ALE has also signed a separate contract with Deugro for the
transportation scope. This involves the loading and unloading
of complete turbine assemblies (nacelles and tower
components) using SPMTs from Denmark to the various
assembly sites in Europe and the UK, including Hull, Sasnitz,
Great Yarmouth and Belfast.
The first offshore wind power plant to benefit from the
newly-constructed Hull harbour will be the Dudgeon project
off the Norfolk coast. The Dudgeon wind farm will comprise
67 of Siemens’ 6 MW offshore wind turbines; with an overall
capacity of 402 MW, Dudgeon will provide clean power to
more than 410,000 UK households.

ALE COMPLETES BUILD OF THE TROJAN TRUCKS
ALE has completed the build of the sixth and final Trojan truck in
The project was part of an ambitious programme initiated by ALE’s
UK branch to build six specialised heavy haulage ballast tractors
that could move heavier, larger loads whilst offering fuel efficiency
The six 8x8 trucks were built in-house in Hixon, Staffordshire, by a
team of 20 over three years.
Since the first Trojan moved a load on the UK road network in 2014,
it is estimated that the UK fleet has collectively moved in excess of
18,300t over UK heavy haulage routes to date.
Unveiled in October 2014, ALE’s Trojan 8870 trucks have gone from
strength to strength, receiving industry awards and recognition for
their innovation and capability.
NEW LIGHTWEIGHT SERVICE
CRANE IS IN PRODUCTION
ALE’s R&D department has commenced production of
the new Lightweight Service Crane. This exciting new
crane is fully designed out of light modular parts that can
be assembled by hand. Each part can fit in an elevator
or transported over an access walkway or stairs, making
it ideal for use on civil projects globally where space is
limited. The crane is expected to be available to the market
in November 2016.
Gary Butler, Operational Project Manager who oversaw the build
team, said: “The programme has been a real success; it has
enhanced the skill set of the in-house build team and given ALE an
innovative product that sets the bar for transportation and British
manufacturing. The team and I are really proud of the recognition
and it’s great to see the trucks so well received by the industry and
clients alike. We are really pleased with the trucks’ performance so
far and continue to make improvements and enhancements.”
One of the Trojan trucks is currently putting the truck’s parameter
adjustment technology to the test in Egypt’s 40°C heat, as it works

in excess of 500t, whilst another will be working on a project
ALE PURCHASE NEW LR1750-2 WIDE
ALE has enhanced its
cranes fleet with the latest
development from Liebherr,
the LR1750-2 crane. The
new wide boom system
has been purchased
specially to undertake the
handling scope for the
Siemens ‘Crane Framework
Agreement’ starting in the
UK in September 2016.
The wide boom system
provides a cost effective
solution and allows ALE to
minimise the need for larger
crawler cranes. With the
higher lifting capacities, the
crane will enable ALE to
handle heavier and longer
tower sections for the
project during the upending
and placement of tower
sections onto tower frames
in preparation for collection
by the offshore vessels.
ALE PROGRESS ON HEAVY DUTY JIB
ALE are progressing with the
fabrication of the new heavy duty jib

from engineering and project management to the design of bespoke solutions
including ramps, grillages, sea-fastening, winches and ballast pumps.
ALE LAUNCH NEW FLEET OF
WIDENING TRAILERS IN THE UK
ALE has expanded its global fleet of trailers and
invested in the latest range of widening trailers that
can be widened to 4.3m whilst loaded, making these
the only trailers of their kind in the UK.
One of the main features is the lighter block ground
loading achieved with an axle beam that is 30% longer
and the axle spacing that is 10% greater than the
industry standard. As the trailers widen out to 4.3m
the weight is better spread and the load is distributed
more effectively. With an overall lighter block ground
loading, these trailers are more inclined to achieve
route clearance compared to other trailers.
As the shortest possible routes can be taken and
more routes available, more direct routes can be
used and less time will be spent on public roads,
meaning cost savings as well as reduced congestion
The trailers are expected to be recognised as a
more favourable solution for bridge owners and local
authorities as the wider distribution of axle weight
and gross load over the structure will result in less
stress on the bridge and bearings. By mitigating
these issues, it minimises wear and tear and ultimately
results in lower maintenance costs for bridge owners
and local authorities. As they can be widened whilst
loaded they will minimise street furniture removal.
This is because they can run at 3.6m wide and only
widen out when necessary.
“We wanted to update our existing fleet of trailers in
the UK and took the opportunity to capture additional
benefits. There was nothing on the market; we
approached Goldhofer with a technical solution for
a trailer that could be widened whilst loaded and
they created an innovative solution that matched our
requirements,” said Darren Adams, Director - UK.
“These new trailers can deliver on routes that others
simply cannot, with increased efficiency and speed to
get to site. These will prove a favourable alternative not
only for the authorities with reduced maintenance costs
and congestion on public roads, but for the clients as
well, as less time is spent on finding alternative routes,
meaning reduced engineering costs and less time
spent on structural assessments.
“These trailers improve our routing database and
offer a more time and cost effective solution overall
for everyone involved in road transportation.”
These new trailers will expand our current fleet
of widening trailers already based in Australia and
South Africa. ALE has purchased 50 axle lines of
these trailers for use on road transportation projects
across the UK.
WORLDWIDE HEAVY TRANSPORTATION AND LIFTING
PROGRESSION WITH OIL SANDS PROJECT
ALE’s joint venture in Canada has been
hard at work at an oil sands project in
northern Alberta, Canada.
In 2015, the company was awarded
an onsite heavy lift and haul scope
including the installation of over 300
modules, specifically within the utilities
and off-sites area of the project. The
personnel and equipment were initially
mobilised to the site in the autumn of 2015
and have since been busy transporting and
installing modules and tagged equipment.
There is a dedicated team working directly
at the site, including safety officers,
supervisors, operators, drivers, engineers,
administration, and project management.
The company are currently operating two
750t crawler cranes and one 500t crawler
crane, each fitted with wheeled superlift
carriers, as well as a 90t rough terrain
crane and 2 x 12 axle lines of hydraulic
platform trailer with prime movers.
In addition to the cranes and hydraulic
platform trailers, we have introduced
our own Modular Lifting System at the
project. The system is a piece of rigging
apparatus, designed by the engineering
department, which replaces the traditional
rigging assemblies commonly utilised on
projects in the region. The efficiency and
ease of use of the system has been proven
on site. It’s ability to self-adjust to match
the Centre of Gravity of each load without
dis-assembly, allows the project to reduce
time spent on each lift. This aspect of the
system is of great benefit to the project,
as the scope includes the placement of
over 300 modules. The modules weigh
up to as much as 175,000 kg each.
The full duration of the scope requires
the personnel and equipment to operate
in all seasons and weather conditions,
with temperatures between -40°c in the
winter months and up to 30°c in summer.
The spring of 2016 brought with it a
devastating forest fire, which forced the
temporary closure and evacuation of the
site. In support of emergency response
efforts, the site suspended construction
activity to support camp and flight logistics
for people displaced. The project has
since been ramped back up to planned
Since returning to the site in June, the
personnel and equipment have been
working diligently to assist the client in
retaining the module installation schedule.
“This project has been an exceptional
display of our capacity to execute in a
safe, professional and effective manner,
whilst focusing on best-in-class service,
quality, management and innovation,”
said Jonathan Hayden, Tendering Manager.
STAR PERFORMANCE AS AL.SK190 CRANE DELIVERS PROJECT
EFFICIENCIES IN TURKEY
One of the world’s largest capacity land based cranes, the
AL.SK190, was contracted to perform over 10 super heavy lifts
The primary milestone was achieved in June when the crane
performed its first lifts, handling and installing two critical
components delivered at the greenfield petrochemical site in Aliağ
a, Izmir province in Turkey. ALE used the mighty AL.SK190 crane
to upright a 600t vacuum tower and an 800t crude column, lifting
them over a 20m high pipe rack and placing them safely into their
final positions. The tallest item measured over 80m.
The final lifts involved the product fractionator, weighing 850t and
measuring 76m long, which was installed at 103m radius, as well
as the reactor lifts, with the heaviest project lift of 1,120t.
Project Manager Jose Angel Morquillas commented: “Our
innovative AL.SK190 crane is a unique event for Turkey. The
ALE-designed crane was the perfect match for the STAR Aegean
Refinery Project (ARP), as it enabled huge planning optimisations
with regards to civil works, piping and the installation of loadbearing
structures before the arrival of the critical components.
“In today’s competitive market, this type of equipment is mostly
being fabricated and shipped from overseas. The selected crane
configuration allowed the foundations, chimney, pipe racks,
substations and compressor buildings to be constructed well in
advance of the arrival and installation of the heavy equipment.
“In addition to the on-site preparatory works, the owners, project
developers and EPC-contractor were able to fine-tune and adapt the
initial logistics strategy and budget as a direct result of the AL.SK190

which is currently under construction offshore in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
ALE are executing the weighing, land and marine transportation,
lifting and installation as well as the engineering, ballasting and sea
fastening for an offshore oil field project that is located about 140km
northwest of Abu Dhabi, UAE.
ALE’s UAE branch were awarded an 18-month turnkey project,
contracted to deliver numerous pipe rack, process modules and
substations, weighing between 170t –1,700t, from Mina Zayed
Port and various fabrication yards via the Arabian Gulf, to the
project site on Zirku Island.
During this project, ALE will be using a variety of different
techniques, from weighing, land and marine transportation,
to load-ins, load-outs and barge chartering and installations.
Furthermore, ALE will be utilising a variety of heavylift cranes
and transport equipment including ALE barges, SPMTs and
Shafic Tillawi, Project Manager for ALE, commented: “This is
one of the largest offshore projects in which ALE’s Middle East
region has been involved. By providing multiple trips offshore
for super heavy lifts, as well as a full package of services and
techniques, it demonstrates our overall capabilities. As we
approach the next stage, we are preparing to handle and load-out
larger and more challenging modules, with some modules as
heavy as 1,700t.”
Satah al-Razboot (SARB) offshore oil field is expected to add an
additional 100,000 barrels per day of oil to the overall oil production
capacity of UAE upon commissioning in 2016. The islands will serve
as bases for drilling the oilfield and eliminate the use of offshore
rigs. The project will involve drilling of 86 oil wells. Oil drilled from
the wells will be transferred via a subsea pipeline to a new facility
to be built on Zirku Island for processing, storage and export. The
processing facility at Zirku Island will have a capacity of 200,000
barrels of oil per day.

ALE USE INNOVATIVE HYDRO DECK TO COMPLETE ICHTHYS PROJECT
ONSHORE LNG FACILITIES CONTRACT
ALE has completed its scope of work at the Ichthys Project
Onshore LNG Facilities in Darwin, Australia, using the Hydro
Deck for the first time.
ALE was contracted by JKC Australia Ltd to load-out 178
pre-fabricated modules from a range of heavy lift vessels.
The scope of work started in June 2014 and the modules were
loaded-out by the Hydro Deck’s Operations Team. By utilising the
Hydro Deck, a dynamically ballastable transition pontoon owned
and operated by AG&P ALE Ventures Pte. Limited, it could be
kept level with the Module Offloading Facility in order to safely
One of the challenges the team faced was the daily tidal range
up to 8.3m. Depending on the berthing layout and water depths,
the Hydro Deck could otherwise provide 100% availability for
24 x 7 load-out operations. The Hydro Deck widened otherwise
tide-constrained module delivery windows for the Ichthys LNG
Project and provided cost-effective and timely module delivery
throughout its charter.
The modules varied in weight and size. The heaviest cargo the
project team transferred was 1,821t, for which 150 axle lines of
SPMT in a 10 file 30 configuration were involved. For the longest
module, measuring 73m, 92 axle lines of SPMT in a 4 file 46
configuration were used. The combined total weight of the
transferred modules was 41,612t.
Tomas Villarino, Lead Engineer for ALE, said: “The AG&P ALE
Ventures operations team of Superintendents, Ballast Engineers,
Ballast Operators, Engineers and Mechanical and Electrical
Technicians worked seamlessly together, withstanding harsh
weather conditions to deliver professional, timely and safe
operations without sustaining any Lost Time Injuries.
“We demonstrated the capability of carrying out the tasks and
working with client feedback, constantly improving every detail.
It was this spirit which maintained the quality and safety throughout
“It was fantastic to be involved in this landmark project, with the
AG&P ALE scope spanning almost two years. In its inaugural charter,
the Hydro Deck was instrumental in delivering the modules safely
and in a time-effective way that no other piece of equipment

and weighing up to 30t each, will arrive in shipments of 60 railcars
a time, over a period of 22 months.
Andrew Spink, General Manager for ALE’s branch in Saudi Arabia,
said; “As the infrastructure sector continues to develop in Saudi
Arabia, with the increase in construction of metros and railways,
ALE has made significant investments in equipment and expertise
to help meet the requirements of clients in the region. We are involved
with the transportation of heavy concrete segments on the Riyadh
metro, and recently we have transported several shipments of rail
cars and locomotives.
“We are delighted to have secured this contract; to be involved in
the movement of the largest amount of railcars the country has ever
received is an indicator of our increasing presence and capabilities in
Saudi Arabia’s growing civil infrastructure sector.”

MFC Project, Saudi Arabia
Overview: ALE completed 161 installations at a chemical plant in the Eastern
province of Saudi Arabia.
Services Required: To complete the installations which were to the Mixed
Feeder Cracker (MFC), the team utilised the AL.SK190, the LR1800 - 800t
capacity – as a tailing crane, and the CC2800-1 600t capacity crane. The AL.SK
was used on the larger pieces up to 1,329t, where smaller loads ranging from
25t were installed by the CC2800-1.
ALE have been operational in Saudi Arabia for over 15 years, supporting local partners on crane and transport projects in the power,
petrochemical and oil and gas sectors primarily. With the demand from our international client base for a focus on highly consistent quality
and safety standards, it has led ALE to establish a key presence in the market and two strategically located offices in Jeddah and Jubail.
General Manager, Andrew Spink, heads up the teams across the two offices. The main facility is located directly outside Jubail Industrial
port. With over 30,000 square meters of land for the storage of client equipment, alongside the new office on site, the facility is strategically
located as the port and the industrial area surrounding it is the key gateway for heavy loads coming into the local industrial area.
Focusing on the power, civils, petrochemical, offshore and oil and gas sectors, the branch has grown due to demand for a professional
service on many major projects in the Jubail and Eastern Province areas. These include Maaden at Ras Al Khair and Saudi Kayan, SADARA,
and SATORP in Jubail. In fact, ALE’s AL.SK190 crane performed its first lift in Jubail in 2009.
“The investment in the facility, with a new office in the same location as the yard, will lead to a more proactive and effective working
environment to support our clients” says Andrew Spink.
“In addition to oil and gas projects, we have branched out into civils and the rail sector, securing significant storage and transportation scopes
with Saudi Arabian Railways and the Riyadh Metro. In the future we will see the renewables sector opening up and a whole new set of
opportunities in this sector.”

ALE HOLDS GLOBAL OPERATIONS FORUM
Earlier this year, ALE held a three-day summit with the
Operations Managers from all corners of the globe convening in
Breda, the Netherlands. In addition to bringing everyone together,
the agenda was determined by a variety of sources, including
client responses to the customer satisfaction survey distributed
prior to the event. The summit covered HSQE, in-house training
programmes, staff engagement, maintenance, purchasing and
the new developments in business systems.
David Purslow, General Manager - Global Operations, said:
“The forum was really successful. As ALE’s regional teams work
together to utilise the global network or personnel expertise and
equipment, this was the ideal platform for networking, sharing
best practice, maintaining and improving standards globally as
well as bringing greater consistency across our business.”
Following the forum, a number of working groups have been
established in order to drive through the changes that were
Mervin Cunningham – Regional Training Manager in South Africa.
ALE’s in-house Standard
Schemes of Training (SSOTs)
consists of 10 pragmatic,
vocational training schemes
covering ALE’s global fleet
of specialised equipment.
The compulsory training
scheme is classified into
‘Black’ and ‘Yellow’ belts,
similar to that of martial arts,
to give clear recognition of
the standards required.
Q: When did you join ALE?
A: I joined ALE’s Cape Town office four years
ago in 2012 as a Rigging Supervisor, before
working my way up within the company.
With 19 years of experience in the field, I
went on to be the Cranes and Lifting Operations
Manager and have recently been promoted
to Regional Training Manager for South Africa.
Q: Describe your role and what it involves?
A: As Regional Training Manager for South Africa, I’m
now in the role of overseeing all training, such as
internal training and SSOTs which includes; ALE’s
jacking and skidding equipment, gantries, trailers
and cranes. In addition, I oversee the external
training and mentoring for riggers to become Red
Seal qualified riggers. The day to day training works
hand in hand with the HR department as well as
the HSQE team, to ensure the best training is given
where needed in the region. This is so we can
perform at 100% for the needs of our clients.
Q: What is a typical day like?
A: I’m still actively involved in the same day to day
jobs as an ALE ‘black belt’, making sure that the
equipment falls in line with the SSOT internal
training. Therefore, it works hand in hand with
the new role as a Training Manager, where I
train, mentor and assess the up and coming ALE
employees for the future. ALE’s South Africa
branch has developed training for cranes as well as
the SSOTs, and the biggest part of my job is getting
ALE operators to the highest standards that we can
I spend a lot of time with the Engineering
Manager to find alternative solutions that will be
communicated to the rest of the teams to form
part of their training to calculate and read drawings.
Head of Operations and myself work hand in hand
to build possible brown and black belts in the South
Q: What is the focus within the region?
A: The regional aim is to promote ourselves at a
certain standard and we guarantee this with
our experience, by providing the best value for
our clients. We set our standards at the highest
level of professionalism. As a result, we plan
and identify what we need to achieve in our gap
analysis and build a level of experience through
our internal SSOTs, so our clients can feel
confident with the skills that we provide.
The key to our success is in the training of our
people; being at such a level makes our company
so unique and above the rest. We have top of the

the ultimate winning combination.
Q: How has the branch changed since you have
A: Having started with 40 members on our team,
ALE’s Cape Town branch has now grown to
become one of the largest leading companies in
the industry locally. With the introduction
of wind and renewable projects, the amount of
employees has increased to over 200, resulting in
increased focus on training.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working
A: The challenges that are faced on a day to day
basis are what I enjoy the most. ALE is on a
different level to most companies. We specialise
in innovation and challenge the conventional, in a
field where most companies do not. I’m proud to
be part of that; there are always new and different
training skills to learn and pass on.
CONTINUAL STAFF DEVELOPMENT: CANDIDATES
ENROL ON LEARNERSHIPS IN SOUTH AFRICA
In recent months, ALE has offered
six learnerships in the Cape Town
branch, South Africa. Learnerships
are part of a training scheme set up
by the South African Government to
give practical experience to those
entering specific fields of study and
are unable to gain the experience.
ALE has taken on six junior riggers
who will complete the practical part
of their learnerships with ALE. This
learnership is renewable annually
over a period of three years. During
the learnership, each candidate
is provided the opportunity to
gain practical experience and to
understand the business and learn
the essential skills pertaining to their
role in the business. They function
under the supervision of a senior
supervisor in their field who acts as
mentor and will complete log books
to keep track of progress.
Helene Griffin, HR Manager, said:
“As a company, we identified the
critical skills required and as we
have been looking to recruit Red
Seal Riggers, which can normally
take up to five years to qualify.
“They spend their time on different
project sites, learning key skills and
working through the ALE SSOT book.
Our Regional Training Manager,
Mervin Cunningham, will spend time
coaching them and assessing their
progress. Half of our learners are
female; as this is a field not usually
considered by women, it is great to
see how well they are performing
and the shift in the industry. Our
learners are currently working at the
Port in Coega, under the supervision
of a Red Seal Rigger and a Crane
Supervisor, and we will be sending
them to various sites until April 2017
to gain different experience.”
At the end of the learnership,
ALE hopes to be able to appoint
the best performers as permanent

JACK-UP OF BRIDGE SECTIONS USING
THE MEGA JACK, BELGIUM
OVERVIEW: ALE has successfully
jacked-up three bridge sections
over the Albert Kanaal in Genk,
Belgium. This was the first time ALE’s
revolutionary Mega Jack system has
been used in Europe.
SERVICES REQUIRED: The first
phase of the project involved
jacking-up the bridge sections.
The main bridge, with a span of 180m
and weight of 4,500t, was jacked
up 2.9m using the Mega Jack. This
jacking system comprised of eight
jacks, each with 1,300t capacity,
thus creating a total lifting capacity
For both side bridges, a computerised
jacking system with a total of 2,000t
capacity and oversized steel beams
was used, which allowed for the
bridge to be jacked-up on all 14
bearing points simultaneously.
CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE CASE
STUDIES FROM THIS REGION
One of the challenges ALE faced
was to utilise a computerised jacking
system with a jacking accuracy of
+/- 0.3mm and a read-out accuracy
of +/- 0.01mm. Furthermore, as the
bridge foundations were located close
to the quayside, a system was required
with a high jacking capacity and a small
footprint. By using the Mega Jack, ALE
could complete the jack-up quickly and
safely within the space available.
The bridge jack-up operations are part
of the Albert Kanaal Project, in which
over 50 bridges will eventually have
a free passing height of 9.1m and a
channel width of 86m.
ALE spent over two weeks preparing
for the operation and completed the
jack-up of the three bridge sections
in three days. It took three days to
jack-down and two weeks for the
demobilisation of equipment.
LIFTING, TRANSPORTATION, ROLL-UP AND JACK-UP
OF OFFSHORE WIND COMPONENTS, UK
OVERVIEW: As part of a major wind farm
project, ALE were given the scope of lifting
components, performing multiple site
moves, rolling-up and jacking-up the jacket,
and loading-out the jacket and topside at the
fabrication site in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
SERVICES REQUIRED: ALE has used its
award-winning Mega Jack 800 for the first
time in the UK to jack-up a 954t jacket to
During the project ALE lifted hundreds of
components using cranes, telehandlers
and chainblocks. The site moves were also
performed using 16 axle lines of SPMT in a
configuration of 4 file 8.
One of the most critical scopes of the
project involved the roll-up and jack-up of
a jacket, weighing 954t. Prior to the roll-up
operation, four jacking towers were set-up
with the first layer of bracing, which saved
several days of set-up/ installation time. The
roll-up was carried out using ALE’s AK912
and the LR1600-2 cranes.
The jack-up operation took place one day
after the roll-up and utilised ALE’s Mega
Jack 800 jacking system. This is the first
time the Mega Jack 800 has been used in
To perform the jack-up, suction buckets
were positioned under each of the jacket
legs and SPMT trailers were used to
manoeuvre them into place. The Mega
Jack 800 held the jacket in place whilst the
suction buckets were welded to the jacket
by the client’s operatives.
The success of the project depended upon
the high level engineering and design works
carried out by SLP and ALE and close
collaborative working with STDL to get
the jacket ready for planned sail away on
The operations are part of the construction
of an offshore facility, comprising of
a topside and jacket structure, for the
Dudgeon offshore wind farm. The wind
farm will be located 20 miles off the coast
of Cromer in North Norfolk and, when
operational, will have the capacity to power
approximately 410,000 homes in the UK.
This project won ALE, the client and the
suction bucket designers, the ‘Best Energy
Project’ award at the East of England Energy
LOAD-OUT OF THE 27,500T MALIKAI TLP, MALAYSIA
OVERVIEW: ALE has loaded-out the
Malikai Tension Leg Platform (TLP),
weighing 27,500t, at Malaysia Marine
and Heavy Engineering (MMHE)
West in Johor Darul Takzim, Malaysia.
This marks another major milestone
for the Malikai Project.
SERVICES REQUIRED: ALE completed
all of the engineering design for the strand
jack supports, deadman anchors and
On the day prior to the load-out, the TLP
was pulled to the quay edge. The distance
of the shore pull was approximately 75m
and took 7 hours to complete.
The TLP was loaded-out out using eight
strand jacks, with 900t capacity each.
Each strand jack was fitted with 39
strand wires, giving a total pulling
capacity of 5,928t.
During the load-out, ALE faced the
challenge of ensuring stability of the vessel
during load transfer as the TLP was loaded
on the vessel in the side-on position. Quay
jacks were used to monitor the vessel
behaviour during the load out and that it
was within the acceptable limits throughout.
As always, close coordination of ballasting
and pulling operations was crucial.
LIFT AND INSTALLATION OF CRYOGENIC TANK PLATFORMS, AUSTRALIA
OVERVIEW: ALE has successfully transported, lifted and installed
two pre-assembled (cryogenic tank) platforms on top of the LNG
tanks. This was part of the Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities in
SERVICES REQUIRED: The LNG main platforms comprised of two
modules, weighing approximately 280t each and measuring 40m
long, 30m wide, 15m high. The total lifting load, including the rigging
arrangement and hook, was approximately 355t each.
Because of the dimensions, irregular shape and reduced ground
clearance of the platforms, ALE engineered detailed turning
simulations to study the complex manoeuvring and to determine the
necessary earthworks to be performed prior to the transport.
The platforms were assembled by the client on top of a steel transport
frame on site. At the end of the assembling and weighing phase, ALE
moved the modules to the lift area using 58 axle lines of SPMTs.
The load-out was undertaken the
following day by skidding the TLP 75m
onto the ‘White Marlin’ vessel. As well
as the pulling operation for the load-out,
ALE operated their barge level monitoring
system. This enabled ALE and the client
to constantly monitor the vessel trim, heal
and deck shape in real time throughout
the load-out. The system also provided
ALE with details of the distance pulled
onto the vessel and the total distance left
The load-out took 12 hours to complete.
The White Marlin has since taken the
TLP to an area off the coast of Singapore,
where the float-off operation was
completed, the TLP towed back and
moored against the quay for final testing
and commissioning. Once completed, the
TLP will be towed to its operating offshore
site, 100km from Sabah, Malaysia.
ALE had previously performed the world’s
highest jack-up and skidding operations
when they jacked-up the Malikai Topside
40m high, before skidding the Topside a
distance of 90m whilst at this elevation
as part of the Malikai EPC TLP. This
load-out operation marks ALE’s final
scope for the project.
The lift operation was particularly complex and presented challenges
because of the rigging arrangement and the irregular and asymmetric
dimensions which required 23 lifting points each. The final
arrangement was an assembly of over 250 pieces of lifting equipment:
spreader beams with capacities from 80t to 600t and custom
length modular lifting beams with capacities up to 270t which were
specifically designed and fabricated by ALE Engineering; shackles with
capacities from 50t to 400t; cable laid grommets with capacities up to
400t and custom lengths; high performance synthetic slings (HMPE)
with capacities from 30t to 100t and custom lengths; lifting load
cells of 55t and 120t capacity; heavy duty turnbuckles of 30t and 55t
capacities and seven different types of connecting link plates of up to
120t, specifically designed and fabricated by ALE Engineering.
When considering the statically indeterminate nature of the lift
(23 lifting points) and the structural design of the platform (unable
to withstand overloads due to fabrication tolerances of slings), the load
transfer from the support frame to the crane hook was carried out with
an iterative procedure. This meant that ALE read the load of the load
cells at each step and (if necessary) adjusted the turnbuckles,
in agreement with the client and the platform designer.
A tri-dimensional clash detection analysis was performed, due to the
restricted clearances between the module and existing structure, the
module and the crane boom (up to 400mm), and the crane super-lift
and other items.
A LR11350 crawler crane
was used to perform the first
lift, taking approximately three
hours, including the removal
of the transport frame. The
second lift was performed
10 days later whilst the site
team dismantled the rigging
the crane pad and erected the
rigging arrangement and the
movement with the SPMTs
under the hook.
This job won the Lift of the
Year award by the Crane

RECEIVING AND STORAGE OF 12 PIPE RACK
OVERVIEW: ALE has successfully performed the receiving and storage of 12 pipe rack
modules, weighing a total of 1,312.2t, for the Deep Conversion Project.
SERVICES REQUIRED: The 12 modules ranged in weight and size, with some as heavy
as 161.8t and measuring up to 32.1m long, 11.5m wide and 11m high.
The modules were received from the vessel at the Port of Guanta, where they were
prepared for onward transportation to the refinery.
Two transport configurations were utilised, consisting of 32 axle lines of SPMT in a 4 file
16 configuration and 40 axle lines of SPMT in a 4 file 20 configuration with two spacer beds.
Overall, ALE has to date received 44 pipe rack modules out of the 96 for the Deep
GANTRY CRANE ROTATION, BRAZIL
OVERVIEW: ALE has successfully loaded, rotated and unloaded
a 2,810t gantry crane from its temporary position, onto its final
track location at a shipyard in Espírito Santo, Brazil.
SERVICES REQUIRED: ALE was hired to uplift a gantry crane,
weighing 2,810t, from a temporary position, rotate and unload
it onto its final track location.
The gantry crane measured 150m wide and 95m high and was
shipped fully assembled from Asia. The ship transporting it could
only be moored 90 degrees to the quay. Therefore, once the
gantry was unloaded, ALE needed to rotate it, so the gantry
crane could move on its rails, alongside the quay.
To execute this very delicate operation, ALE utilised 132 axle
lines of SPMT with eight PPUs to perform the manoeuvres.
During the moves, ALE faced a number of challenges. One of
these was the fact that one of the gantry legs had a hinge on the
top. This meant that any misalignment during the rotation (in any of
CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE CASE
STUDIES FROM THIS REGION
the two directions) could have caused an opening of the leg
and potential damage to the structure or even the collapse
of it. The limits were set at 500mm for the leg opening and
only 300mm for the longitudinal misalignment between the legs.
To reach this delicate tolerance, SPMTs were synchronised and
laser systems were installed to monitor the distance in between
the legs. A topography was also used for this same purpose.
Due to the very heavy loads imposed on the gantry crane
structure, all of the support points between the gantry and
ALE´s equipment needed to be aligned with the crane
manufacturer’s guidelines. For this, ALE made two visits with
the client to the manufacturer in China, so the safest transport
configuration was chosen.
The whole operation, including the jacking-up, rotation and jacking
down, took four hours to complete. The crane will be used on the
yard to handle ship blocks.
TRANSPORTATION AND INSTALLATION OF HEAVY CARGO TO TWO COMBINED-CYCLE
POWER PLANTS, EGYPT
OVERVIEW: ALE has been awarded the transportation and
installation scope for the largest combined cycle project in
ALE has successfully completed the first stage, involving the
transportation and installation of heavy mechanical equipment to
the newly constructed gas combined-cycle power plants in Beni
Suef and New Capital, Egypt.
SERVICES REQUIRED: In the short period of 10 weeks, ALE has
transported six gas turbines, six generators and two transformers
to the power plant in Beni Suef, installing all of the turbines and
generators. Simultaneously, ALE has transported one transformer,
two generators and two turbines to New Capital, also installing all of
the turbines and generators.
Because of the challenging slopes and roads ALE faced during the
route, it needed up to three prime movers to carry the
heaviest gas turbines.
WEIGHING, TRANSPORTATION AND LOAD-OUT OF TWO JACKETS, QATAR
OVERVIEW: ALE has successfully completed the weighing, transportation and load-out of two jackets in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
Both jackets were weighed using
eight 600t weightors. The jackets
weighed 2,628t and 2,581t and
measured 57.04m long x 35m
wide x 36.80m high, making these
jackets the largest and heaviest
jacket to ever be fabricated in Qatar.
ALE transported the jackets
from the fabrication yard to the
quayside. ALE used 144 axle lines
of Gen 3 SPMTs in a 6 x 2 file 24
In consideration of the site
restrictions and the limitations set
by the semi-submersible barge, a
side load-out was performed on
the barge to enable the jacket to
float-off once offshore.
The load-out operation was fully
controlled by a self-ballasting
system of the semi-submersible
barge. Each load-out operation
took approximately three hours
ALE’s award-winning Trojan truck and an MAN truck are being used
on the project, reducing the amount of prime movers,
from three to two.
The gas turbines and generators were installed using skidding
gantries and were moved inside the plant using
24 axle lines of SPMT in a 4 file 12 configuration.
This is part of a bigger contract, where each power plant will have
the power of 4,800 MW, separated in eight gas blocks
and four steam blocks. The total heavy cargo ALE has been
contracted to deliver comprises of: 16 gas turbines weighing
486t and the corresponding generators, eight steam generators,
transformers and more than 380 boiler modules.
The cargo was first delivered to Beni Suef power plant and then to
New Capital power plant two months later. So far,
ALE has not only fulfilled the intended plan but has also managed
to shorten the transportation time of this project.
