ALE saves time and costs on wind projects with latest tower cranes

Overview

ALE has added three new tower cranes to their extensive global fleet that are expected to make cost and time savings for clients in the wind sector.

The innovative K1650L crane has lifting capabilities like no other free-standing tower crane on the wind energy market, with an increased lifting height, and the ability to work at high wind speeds and with uneven or small hardstands.

The compactness of this free-standing pedestal crane means that civil works and costs are ultimately reduced, without the need to be tied-in to the turbine tower. The low counterweight, increased visibility and quick assembly functionality optimises overall project efficiency.

Thanks to the short 70m boom, the area to boom up and down can be significantly shortened when compared to any equivalent lattice boom crane. This, together with the very short minimum boom radius, allows the developer to reduce the portion of land to be acquired and cleared, eventually reducing costs and environmental impact.

“As ALE secure more complex scopes of balance of plant (BoP) within the wind markets, we wanted to invest in the most suitable equipment for these operations,” explains Danilo Viappiani, Regional Engineering Manager.
