Oil, gas and petrochemical
Co-ordination with client
ALE mobilised a heavylift crane to install three tank roofs, saving over a month from the schedule of a section of the Karbala Refinery Project in Iraq. The new facility is expected to have a refinery capacity of 140,000 barrels of crude oil per day and this operation had a tight deadline to keep the $6.04bn project on track.
The tank roofs had been built inside the tanks and the client initially planned to raise them by air. ALE had previously completed a large scope of work on the project of more than 350 lifts of refinery components, so the client had faith in their expertise. ALE’s ability to quickly reconfigure one of the largest-ever capacity cranes in Iraq presented an alternative option that would save time and enable the client to proceed to their next phase ahead of schedule.
