Overview

ALE continues to demonstrate its excellent standards and capabilities by performing the lifting and transportation of an Argentine satellite, SAOCOM 1A, for CONAE to be launched in a Space-X rocket.

ALE was contracted to transport the satellite, weighing 12t, from its fabrication yard to Bariloche airport, where it was loaded into an Antonov plane, ready to be launched at Vandenberg air field. Using their long-standing experience, ALE worked with the most stringent risk management and quality control requirements throughout.

“The client was fully satisfied with our logistics solution and acknowledged our professionalism throughout the project. This is a huge milestone in the country´s space programme development and we are proud that ALE has successfully been part of it,” explained Raul Anriquez, ALE’s Project Manager.

Once the rocket is launched, ALE will then perform the heavy transport of ancillary equipment within the USA and perform the maritime transportation of remaining components back to Chile and overland to Argentina. It is expected to be launched in the Falcon X rocket, belonging to Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, by October 2018.
