Transportation of seven switch rooms, Malaysia
ALE has transported seven switch rooms, weighing 167.64t each, as part of the RAPID project in Pengerang, Malaysia.
The switch rooms were loaded-in at Tanjung Setapa Port, then transported 8km to the project site using 36 axle lines of SPMT in a configuration of 2 x 2 file 18. During the move, ALE had to negotiate five 90° turns and travel at a 90° angle to position the switch room onto its foundation plinth.
ALE travelled a total distance of 15km, completing the transportation of each switch room in 2.5 hours. The entire RAPID project was completed over four months.
