Container Cranes, UAE
ALE was contracted to carry out the land and marine transportation of two Container Cranes from Port Khalid, Sharjah to Khorfakkan Port.
With dimensions of 116 x 26 x 76 metres, the cranes required 96-axle SPMTs. The centre of gravity from the crane rails was 35 metres, so extensive engineering was needed to design safe and cost-effective sea-fastening and ballasting systems. The two cranes were transported by sea on a single barge (138 x 30 metres) for 176 nautical miles.
