ALE Completes Challenging 1,000km Delivery of Wind Components in Thailand

Demonstrating their expertise in logistics, civils works and the complete turnkey solution, ALE has completed the transportation of heavy wind components through a challenging 1,000km route to the Rom Klao wind farm in Mukdahan, eastern Thailand.

Starting in April 2018, ALE was contracted for the full-service package: the transportation, craneage and installation (TCI) scope of 13 wind turbines, measuring up to 5.4m in diameter and weighing up to 125t. With a hub height of 162m, these will be the tallest wind turbine generators (WTGs) in South East Asia.

This project faces numerous challenges, including the sheer size and scale of the WTG components as well as the logistics and routing of components over such a vast distance, with varying obstacles and levels of infrastructure across the country that requires additional civils work.

In order to overcome these challenges, ALE has utilised their local routing and engineering expertise, and invested in specialist wind equipment, such as the unique RA4 tower clamps and the new K1650L tower crane. Manufactured specifically for the company to transport larger and heavier components, the tower clamps enabled ALE to comply with the local weight and height restrictions. Similarly, the tower crane was used as a cost and time effective solution to install the WTGs.

“This is a complex scope of work and route to be undertaken. The new tower clamps enabled us to overcome the large diameters of the tower sections and reduce the travelling height to pass under the restrictions on route. Combined with the tower crane, our equipment and methodology has driven project efficiency,” explained Project Manager Matt Thomson.

“We are really pleased to be involved in a project of this scale. It really showcased how we brought together different expertise within the Group to achieve the safe and successful completion of every stage.”

ALE completed the full TCI scope in January 2019.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
