Project costs cut using ALE’s engineering design in Mexico
Mining and Metals
ALE’s in-house engineering team has used its expertise to save site costs and devise a lifting design that optimised the site during multiple crane lifts in Silao, Mexico.
The scope involved lifting several plant modules, weighing up to 300t each, using an LR11350 crawler crane with P boom. By using this configuration and small footprint, ALE was able to minimise congestion on site and enable construction work to continue. As the client to continue other work without crane pad interfering, overall project costs and build schedules were optimised.
Because of the close working relationship and proven track record in operations such as this, the client had the confidence in ALE’s abilities to successfully complete the multi-lift project in Mexico.
Once complete, the site will become a new steel mill which will be used to supply to all the car plants in the surrounding areas.
