ALE crane methodology saves significant costs on steel mill build

ALE’s in-house engineering team has used its expertise to save site costs and devise a lifting design that optimised the site during multiple crane lifts throughout January in Mexico.

The global heavylifting leaders were contracted to lift modules, ranging from roof panels to plant modules, as part of a bigger construction project for a new steel mill plant in Silao located within the northern state of Guanajuato.

The scope involved lifting several items, weighing up to 300t each (330 US tons), using an LR11350 crawler crane with P boom. By using this configuration and small footprint, ALE was able to minimise congestion on site and enable construction work to continue. As the client to continue other work without crane pad interfering, overall project costs and build schedules were optimised.

“Because of the close working relationship we have established with our client and the proven track record in operations such as these, they had the confidence in our abilities to successfully complete this multi-lift project,” explained Rodney Parker, Vice President of Sales for ALE.

“Not only have we achieved this safely, but we were able to design a solution that minimised impact to the overall construction schedule and saved valuable time and costs.”

Once complete, the site will become a new steel mill which will be used to supply to all the car plants in the surrounding areas.

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?
