ALE’s crane methodology saves significant costs on steel mill build
The global heavylifting leaders were contracted to lift modules, ranging from roof panels to plant modules, as part of a bigger construction project for a new steel mill plant in Silao located within the northern state of Guanajuato.
The scope involved lifting several items, weighing up to 300t each (330 US tons), using an LR11350 crawler crane with P boom. By using this configuration and small footprint, ALE was able to minimise congestion on site and enable construction work to continue. As the client to continue other work without crane pad interfering, overall project costs and build schedules were optimised.
