ALE has completed the transportation of two ship sections, weighing 150t each, within a shipyard in Gdansk, Poland.
ALE transported the aluminium ship sections using 20 axle lines of SPMT in a configuration of 2 x 2 file 10. The transportation needed a high level of expertise from ALE’s operators as the SPMTs were required to travel on a Z-shaped route between the shipyard’s buildings and on to the quay site. ALE had to manoeuvre them close together due to the sections’ welding connection.
Additionally, ALE needed to rotate one of the sections 180 degrees. The transportations were scheduled to take place over a two-day period, but the skill of ALE’s operators enabled ALE to complete the entire operation in just ten hours.
