Transportation of a 525t compressor module, Australia
Overview: ALE were asked to perform a project requiring 30axles of SPT over 2,000km from the depot with only one week notice. The project was to receive a 525t compressor module which had been diverted from its destination at the last minute for repairs.
Services required: The team mobilised and assembled the required equipment and travelled the 2,000km distance from Gladstone to Geelong (near Melbourne). The module was carried on 4 files of 15 axle SPMTs and required an additional 55t of support steelwork to distribute the load onto the trailerdecks. The module was placed on temporary support stands in a laydown area approximately 400m from the wharf for uplift and reloading at a later date.
