ALE develops new hydraulic gantry lift system

« Back to news

Overview

ALE has developed a new telescopic lifting gantry with 1,000t capacity on four towers, the TLG1000. This is the first system in a new fleet of high capacity hydraulic gantries.

The system has been designed in-house with a variable track width, which means the system can run on standard 915mm wide tracks to 1,750mm wide tracks – adding more stability. The three-stage system has 1,000t capacity at all stages, up to 12m high. Furthermore, it has additional safety features, such as a mechanical lock system and monitoring systems, to monitor ground settlements and deflections of the tower.

Now the TLG1000 has been built, function and load tested at ALE’s R&D facilities in the Netherlands, it will be shipped to its inaugural project in South America.
