Transportation, load-out and load-in of RTGs, Thailand

Overview

ALE has performed the load-out and load-in of three rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes, each weighing 120t, in Thailand.

Services Required

ALE transported the RTGs to Suksawat Port using 24 axle lines of SPMT in a configuration of 2 x 4 file 6 axle lines. Additionally, SPMT spacers were used to reduce the total number of axle lines needed.

The RTGs were loaded-out onto a barge, where they were sea fastened. The RTGs were then transported by barge to Kerry Port. ALE completed the load-in at Kerry Port and transported the RTGs approximately 3.5km to the final container terminal.

ALE faced the challenge of transporting the RTGs on a route with limited space. Furthermore, the RTGs’ high centre of gravity made them unstable and ALE needed to find the best solution to stabilise the load. Both the load-out and the load-in were completed in one-day operations.
