ALE uses swift team collaboration to complete heaviest ever convoy transportation in Saudi Arabia

« Back to news


ALE has utilised its experience of transportation over long distances and its international branch network to transport the heaviest items ever moved in convoy through Gijon and Saudi Arabia.

A total of five slug catchers will be transported internationally through built-up areas and across vast distances. In July, ALE completed the challenging transportation of the first two slug catchers, weighing 2,008t each, from Spain to Saudi Arabia, to the Fadhili Gas Program Project site.

Andrew Taylor, Project Manager, said, “Performing the heaviest and largest ever convoy transportation in Saudi Arabia was always going to be a major challenge, especially over such a large distance. In addition, we only had five weeks before the slug catchers arrived at Jubail Industrial Port and the public holidays meant working times were restricted both for ALE and the authorities.”

The three remaining slug catchers will be transported later this year during the second phase of the project.
