Transportation and installation of gas and steam turbine generators, UAE
ALE has transported and installation four gas turbine generators and two steam turbine genertors for Shuweihat S2 IWPP in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The gas turbine generators weighed 206t each and steam turbine generators 318t each. These were received and placed onto SPMTs at Mine Zayed Port in Abu Dhabi. They were loaded onto by the ALE 250 barge transported to Suweihat S1 jetty, where they were rolled off and stored at the quayside.
Once arrived on-site, ALE performed the transportation from the jetty to the S2 IWPP site using SPMTs. They were delivered under a hydraulic gantry system, ready for installation.
The gantry system was set up on elevated steel support to mitigate space constraints between the foundation and the building columns. Once in the turbine hall, ALE installed the generators onto their 5m high foundations using the gantry system.
