Intercooler transportation, Australia
ALE has transported four intercoolers, weighing 48t, to Roma, Queensland.
The intercoolers were loaded using three overhead gantry cranes by the manufacturer in Revesby, New South Wales.
The intercoolers measured 14.5m long x 5.5m wide x 4.20m high. In consideration of these abnormal dimensions and the local transport restrictions within the city area, the loads had to depart at midnight with three escort vehicles.
The Intercoolers were transported 190km using 8 axle lines and 16 axle lines of widening trailers. They then needed to wait for daylight to travel the additional 939km over a two day period.
