Supporting modular construction
ALE completed the first phase of a project for Hansa Meyer Global Transport GmbH & Co.KG that will help Laos achieve its target of 100 hydroelectric plants by 2020. Through this drive, the country is looking to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and enhance economic prosperity through the sale of energy to neighbouring nations.
The scope of this work began at the port of Laem Chabang on the bay of Bangkok, where ALE received an initial cargo of two 88t modules and a further 66t module. From here, the equipment was transported approximately 1,000km through often challenging road conditions to the Thai/Laotian border on the Mekong river.
Here, ALE’s engineering team had arranged for a local barge supplier that had met its rigorous HSQE standards to arrange passage across the river. One by one, the modules were transported into Laos, before being unlashed and transported to the power station site.
