Transportation of cable reel and tanks, Saudi Arabia
ALE has completed the transportation of a cable reel, weighing 22t, and three cable tanks, weighing 223-280t, at a port in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
ALE used 24 axles of SPT in a configuration of 4 file 12 and an eight axle Nooteboom trailer to transport the items to the port’s custom area to undergo clearance procedures.
The cable reel was then transported 4km by SPT and trailer to a yard within the port.
During the operation’s planning stages, ALE’s route survey had indicated that the cable tanks could not be moved through the port without removing several obstructions. Therefore, one of the challenges of the operation was identifying a suitable route modification.
The solution was a barge, provided by the client, which enabled the three cable tanks to be loaded-out and transported across the port.
Due to the detailed preparations, ALE was able to identify route modifications even with the limited time available for the operation.
