Site movement of living quarters, Malaysia
ALE has performed the site move operation of the living quarters (LQ) module, weighing 1,293t, for the Malikai EPC TLP Project at Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) West in Johor Darul Takzim.
The module weighed a total of 1,293.85t, with a transporter length of 42m and transportation width of 30m.
The LQ was fabricated at MMHE’s Mega Workshop and the final installation position was 2.3km away at fabrication area no 5. Prior to the move, a route survey was undertaken to identify the most suitable path for the move. The route consisted of six 90 degree turns and a few bridges and drain crossings, and it took the clients a week for route preparation.
The living quarters module was jacked-up and transported utilizing 60 axle lines of SPMT. Once it had arrived at its final position, the living quarters were lifted and installed on top of the topside by two units of 1,600t crawler cranes.
