Weighing and load-out of 990t topside, Mexico
ALE has successfully performed the weighing and load-out of Nohoch PP1 topside, weighing 900t, in Tuxpan, México.
Firstly, ALE weighed the topside deck.
The topside deck was pulled approximately 67.9m to the quayside using the pulling technique. In order to pull the topside from the fabrication area onto the transportation barge ALE utilised four SJ180 strand jacks, each with a nominal pulling capacity of 220.8t. In addition, ALE devised an innovative sledge design, in which the brackets were installed into the legs of the topside, pulling from there to the barge.
ALE were given a restricted time window by the client and they were able to complete all operations in just one week.
