Relocation of cranes at Port Nou Terminal, Barcelona
ALE relocated a Demag crane weighing 600te from its initial position at Port Nou Dock to its new location at Estibadora de Ponent Dock.
Services required: Prior to the transport ALE installed two 14m long beams to connect the sea-side legs with the corresponding land-side legs. The transportation equipment consisted of forty axles of SPMT’s configured into two parallel lines of 20. Once the manoeuvre was completed ALE skidded a Paceco crane, weighing 850te along a distance of 60m from its rails towards land to enable the relocation of another crane. The equipment used for the skidding included four hydraulic SKS500 skid beams. On completion the Paceco crane was skidded back into position.
