Weighing and load-out for the Martin Linge platform, South Korea
ALE has successfully weighed and loaded-out two modules for the Martin Linge project in South Korea.
ALE first performed the weighings of the utility module, using 24 600t capacity weightors, and the process module, using 32 600t capacity weightors, with ALE’s centrally-controlled synchronised weighing system. This system allowed the client to receive the results of the module weights and centre of gravity positions in real time.
The utility module weighed in at 9,580t and the process module weighed 10,850t.
The modules were then loaded-out onto the same vessel in two separate operations. As the modules had a high centre of gravity, it was extremely challenging to load them out onto the same vessel and control the vessel’s stability. For this, ALE utilised a computerised skidding system to overcome this, as well as quay jacks to monitor the load.
The operations were completed within three months.
