ALE has completed the transportation, lift and final positioning of two feedwater preheaters within the Turbine Building of the Embalse Nuclear Power Plant. This was the final installation for the Embalse Nuclear Power Plant Life Extension Project, Argentina.
Each preheater weighed 26t and measured 10.2m long, 2.3m wide and 2.8m high.
ALE transported the pieces and lifted them using strand jacks and climbing jacking system. ALE also moved the pieces by skidding them using skid beams and performed rotational skidding by using turntables. To support the preheaters during transport, ALE designed and fabricated temporary auxiliary saddles.
