ALE completes 20,000t load-outs in South Korea

ALE has loaded-out two modules weighing a combined weight of over 20,000t for the Martin Linge platform project in South Korea. The global heavylifting provider was contracted to perform both the weighing and load-out operations for the utility and process modules of the platform.

ALE’s specialist division, ALE-Offshore Services, executed the weighings using ALE’s centrally-controlled synchronised weighing system and weightors. The utility module weighed in at 9,580t and the process module weighed 10,850t. The modules were then loaded-out onto the same vessel over two months. The load-outs took place in two separate operations using a specialised skidding system.

Edwin Blosser, Project Engineer for ALE said: “In consideration of the sheer size and scale of the piece, to perform the load-out was no mean feat. As the modules had a high centre of gravity, it was extremely challenging to load them out onto the same vessel and control the vessel’s stability. We utilised a computerised skidding system to overcome this, as well as quay jacks to monitor the load.”

The operations took approximately three months to complete, finishing the final load-out in December 2017.
