Transportation of an STS crane in the terminal of Port Nou in Barcelona, Spain

 

Overview

ALE has performed the transportation of an STS crane, weighing 800t, within the terminal of Port Nou in Barcelona.

 

Services Required

The crane was transported from its original location to its new location and placed onto the rails. Prior to the transportation, ALE welded the transport brackets on-site. These were specifically designed by ALE for that manoeuvre.

The transportation was performed using 40 axles lines of SPMT and two cross beams, measuring 14m long. The beams were previously assembled on temporary supports which transferred the load from the crane resistant areas to the transport platforms.

The transport was completed in just one day, as planned, which minimised the impact on the traffic in the terminal.

Resumen

ALE ha realizado el transporte de  una grúa STS de 800t de peso dentro de la Terminal de Port Nou de Barcelona, desde su posición original hasta su nuevo emplazamiento y puesta en carriles.

 

Servicios Requeridos

Previo al transporte ALE procedió a la soldadura in situ de las ménsulas de transporte diseñadas por ALE y fabricadas expresamente para dicha maniobra.

El transporte se llevó a cabo utilizando 40 líneas de plataformas autopropulsadas de transporte (SPMT) y dos vigas transversales de 14m de longitud previamente montadas sobre apoyos temporales, las cuales transfirieron la carga desde las zonas resistentes de la grúa a las plataformas de transporte.

El transporte se desarrolló conforme a lo previsto en apenas una jornada, lo que redujo al mínimo la incidencia en el normal desarrollo del tráfico en la terminal.
