Quick equipment mobilisation keeps USA project on track
ALE helped to keep the Great River project schedule in Mississippi, USA, on time by quickly mobilising its expertise and USA-based SPMT fleet.
Five pressure vessels weighing a total of 200t were critical to the Great River Project and were due to be delivered to the site by barge. However, the client realised that specialist support was needed to ensure the vessels could be transported safely to where they were due to be installed.
ALE’s expertise in abnormal load transportation meant it was able to react quickly and mobilise SPMT lines from its USA fleet, performing the transport the day after mobilisation. This allowed the project to stay on schedule and avoid potentially costly delays.
Mike Crawford, Account Manager at ALE, explained, “The transport of the pressure vessels was on the project’s critical path, which demanded we were able to identify the correct solution and implement it successfully within a very tight timeframe.
“This was made possible thanks to the specialist experience of our local team and the range of equipment we have available in the USA. All the vessels were transported safely within a two-day window so that subsequent work could continue as planned.”
