ALE has performed the transportation of an STS crane, weighing 870t, from Valencia Port to Cádiz Port in Spain.
ALE utilised 40 axle lines of SPMT in a configuration of 2 x 2 file 20 to transport the STS crane from Valencia Port’s storage area within the terminal to the barge.
The SPMTs were also used to load-out the crane onto the barge and ALE provided the necessary grillage material for the maritime transportation.
ALE completed the load-out in two hours, guaranteeing the safety and stability of the manoeuvres. Upon arrival in Cádiz, the SPMTs were used in the same configuration to perform the load-in. The STS crane was then transported to its final location on a set of rails.
The manoeuvrability of the SPMTs enabled ALE to carry out the operations in a very small space, ensuring there were no interferences in the dock.
