Jacking and skidding of a portainer crane, Chile
ALE has performed the jacking and skidding of a portainer crane, weighing 1,400t, at the Terminal Pacifico Sur Valparaiso port in Valparaiso, Chile.
The crane was skidded away from a set of railway tracks so that the port could increase the quay efficiency and four cranes could be relocated.
ALE used eight 150t skid shoes with four 22t jacks and four 300t skid shoes with four 43t jacks to move the crane 60m.
The total length skidded during the operation was 120m.
ALE completed the manoeuvre in 40 hours.
