ALE's 4,140 Tonnes on Scheuerle SPMT

ALE shifts 4,140 tonnes on Scheuerle SPMTs

For the expansion of the infrastructure for the Cygnus gas field in the North Sea, ALE UK has once again been relying on SCHEUERLE SPMTs. On 168 SPMT axle lines and using a loose coupling mode, a 4,140 t segment of a production platform as well as a total of four support elements with unit weights of between 1,180 and 2,125 t were transported.

By 2016, the Cygnus gas field should account for five per cent of UK gas production thus supplying 1.5 million households with energy. Delays in projects of this size are extremely expensive which is why the operator, GDF SUEZ E&P UK decided in favour of the vast experience of ALE along with the company´s superb range of transport equipment. Thanks to these two factors, the transportation of all five components went very smoothly although, among other things, the route included overcoming an inclined stretch of road with a three per cent gradient transverse to the direction of travel. On arrival at the quayside, the components were loaded onto a waiting barge and then transported to their final destination in the southern North Sea.
