Innovative bespoke solution
Effective coordination with third parties
ALE’s innovative mindset has enabled them to complete a challenging wind tower transportation in the most effective way possible. ALE successfully transported nine offshore wind tower sections, weighing 156t each, to Campbeltown Harbour, Scotland. These are the first offshore towers to be manufactured in the UK and ALE drew on its vast equipment fleet to select a transportation technique that shortened the schedule and delivered cost-efficiency on the project.
ALE began preparations for the transportation almost a year in advance of the operation, working in close partnership with the client throughout to demonstrate the feasibility of ALE’s proposed solution. ALE also coordinated with several other third parties on the project to provide the most efficient delivery programme possible.
