Carrington CCGT Installation of GT & GTG, UK
ALE was awarded a full turnkey package for the transportation and installation of associated heavy equipment for the Carrington CCGT Power Station. This included the installation of the gas turbine and generator units which ALE successfully completed with its Lift n Lock system.
Prior to the installation of the Gas Turbine Generator, the ALE Lift n Lock system was rigged within the turbine hall of the power station.
ALE then transported the 360t gas turbine generator on 24 axle lines of SPMT from the laydown area on site to the installation area in the turbine hall. Skidding equipment and an ALE 635t capacity Lift n Lock system were used to install the generator on a plinth 4.5m above ground level.
The 385t gas turbine unit was transported on site by SPMT and was skidded 9.5m into position. It was then jacked down and aligned on the base plates.
