ALE shifts 4,140 tonnes on Scheuerle SPMTs

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.

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?

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
