The global heavylifting specialists are executing the weighing, land and marine transportation, lifting and installation as well as the engineering, ballasting and sea fastening for an offshore oil field project that is located about 140km northwest of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

ALE’s UAE branch were awarded an 18-month turnkey project, contracted to deliver numerous pipe rack, process modules and substations, weighing between 170t –1,700t, from Mina Zayed Port and various fabrication yards via the Arabian Gulf, to the project site on Zirku Island.

During this project, ALE will be using a variety of different techniques, from weighing, land and marine transportation, to load-ins, load-outs and barge chartering and installations. Furthermore, ALE will be utilising a variety of heavylift cranes and transport equipment including ALE barges, SPMTs and crawler cranes.

Shafic Tillawi, Project Manager for ALE, commented: “This is one of the largest offshore projects that ALE Middle East has been involved in. By providing multiple trips offshore for super heavy lifts, as well as a full package of services and techniques, it demonstrates our overall capabilities. As we approach the next stage, we are preparing to handle and load-out larger and more challenging modules, with some modules as heavy as 1,700t.”
