ALE operates a comprehensive fleet of heavy cranes including crawler cranes and pedestal cranes ranging from 200 to 1,600te capacity. The fleet includes some of the largest and latest technology equipment available today, and has been designed to provide a top to bottom range of capacities that – combined – act as complete project fleets, providing the range, sizes and capabilities to meet modern day projects. The cranes are based in strategic locations worldwide to provide an efficient and cost-effective solution, minimising mobilisation and maximising use.
The AL.SK190 and AL.SK350 cranes
We are proud to have introduced the world’s highest-capacity land-based cranes – the AL.SK190 and AL.SK350. With the ability to lift up to 5000te, they can be dismantled and shipped around the world in ISO containers. They are also capable of being relocated fully rigged onsite saving considerable time during the construction of major projects.
For ballast, the AL.SK190 and AL.SK350 use locally available material such as sand or gravel, which is loaded into 100te capacity containers. Uniquely, the ballast remains static while the crane slews around a pivot system, making them much more appropriate for congested sites than ring cranes.
These cranes can offer significant benefits over traditional cranes and can substantially reduce construction schedules and costs.
