Module transportation for the Soloman Mine in Port Hedland, Australia



ALE have transported various oversize modules for the Solomon Mine from Port Hedland, Western Australia.


Services Required

The engineering transport arrangements, stability calculations and lashing calculations were compiled and analysed by the ALE team to ensure the highest standards of safety. Moved in three separate transportation events, ALE faced the challenging task of the initial transport planning to eventual delivery to the mine site.

The dimensions of the modules were from 39m to 65m long and to a height of 15m. Widths ranged from 8.5m – 13 m wide, with weights ranging from 170t – 220t.

The modules were collected from the laydown yard at Port Hedland from a stooling arrangement. In order to load the hopper onto a road-going trailer, the stool height had to be increased using 60 axle lines of SPMTs. Once the SPMT were under the hopper, it was sufficiently raised to insert the transport beams at strategic points underneath and the trailer was reversed into position and made ready for transportation.

The modules were transported to site by a Kenworth 508 and a 4-file Goldhofer trailer.
