ALE completes 7,000 US-ton lifts with world’s largest capacity crane

ALE completes 7,000 US-ton lifts with world’s largest capacity crane

ALE has lifted over 7,000 US tons using the world’s largest capacity land-based crane for an oil and gas project in Texas, USA.

The three modules, weighing a combined total up to 6,614t (7,290 US tons with block and tackle included), are being lifted using ALE’s unique AL.SK350 crane for the project in Ingleside. As the crane can lift from one position, this is the ideal solution for working in the congested site and significant time is saved by not needing to relocate the crane for every lift, as would have been the case with other ring cranes.

The third lift, involving the living quarter module, took place in March and weighed a combined total of 2,234t (2,462 US tons with block and tackle included). For this, the installation outreach 42.8m.

Ronnie Adams, Senior Project Manager, explained:

“As we come to the end of the first phase, we are proud of the professionalism shown throughout. Our experienced crew, working alongside our crane with such unique abilities, has enabled us to achieve these heavy lifts in a challenging site environment. By using the latest technologies, we could carry out the lifts on schedule and safely, while minimising disruption to the rest of the busy site.”
