ALE are also leading a specifically created joint venture company with Iemants and ICO to manage the MISY contract. Iemants is an international steel construction company with a proven track record in the engineering, production, delivery and assembly of mainly heavy, technically complex and architectonic steel constructions and ICO is a world leading terminal operator for roll-on/roll-off cargo and serves an extensive network of shipping companies all over the world. The joint venture has provided a wide range of services which include:

– Project commercial management and administration;
– Project documentation control
– QA/QC management
– HSE management
– Fabrication of new grillages and seafastening;
– Refurbishment of existing grillages for future re-use;
– Deck cleaning of all the modular carrier vessels;
– Project material trans-shipment (break bulk cargo reception, tracking and tallying, storage on a dedicated yard and warehouse);
– Yard facilities (offices, canteen, warehouses);
– Port services (four dedicated berths, clearing for vessels entering, mooring, shifting and departing from the port);
– Forwarding agent;
– Security in all project areas including ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security) compliancy.

ALE’s and the joint venture’s Project Director, Filippo Anello, said: “We have been working on this project since the very early preparation stages in 2015, and it is fantastic to see how much we have achieved at this milestone one year after. I’m extremely proud of the teamwork and professionalism shown during the execution of the project, as well as the good synergy and partnership with our client. We look forward to the successful completion of the logistics phase of the Yamal LNG project, which has demonstrated our ability to manage a project-specific joint venture and a wide-ranging scope of work”.

ALE’s Global Project Division Director, Toby Allin, said: “We were very honoured to lead the joint venture company that was selected to set up and manage the MISY facility for the Yamal LNG Project. This has given us the opportunity to work closely with our client in order to provide an integrated logistics solution that satisfies our client’s needs in terms of interface management and responsiveness. We believe that this is an innovative model for future, major projects to emulate.”

Yamal LNG is an integrated project encompassing natural gas production, liquefaction and shipping. It requires the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Sabetta on the Yamal peninsula and will have an output capacity of around 16.5 million tons per year, using the South Tambey Field as a resource base. As part of the project execution, Yamgaz, the joint venture led by TechnipFMC with JGC and Chiyoda who are designing and constructing the LNG plant, required an intermediate storage yard for both modules and breakbulk equipment items which are trans-shipped to Sabetta during the winter period with specific polar class vessels.

HeavyTorque is an essential read magazine for decision makers within the heavy haulage and specialist transport industry and provides a great opportunity for manufacturers to make their mark. The adverts are well produced, editorials exceptionally informative and the staff’s support has always been excellent. Promoting our products in HeavyTorque magazine is one of the best marketing decisions we have made.

Kelsa choose to advertise in HeavyTorque because its content is clearly for serious players in the haulage industry, with a wide range of informative articles. We know that it reaches the right people and covers aspects of trucking most others do not, offering information on changes within the industry as well as new products and services. As a designer I’m also aware of the extremely high quality of the photographic content and print. We are really happy with the service we receive and have no hesitate in recommending HeavyTorque to truckers everywhere.

I certainly enjoy reading HeavyTorque - and whilst we do not operate any heavy haulage ourselves - we do so on a sub-contract basis. Therefore, it’s good to see what equipment is being used by both suppliers, and the industry operators alike. The content and photographic quality is always first rate. Keep up the great work!

HeavyTorque magazine is a class apart. Its orientation illustrates our sector on a different level. The general look is really unique and we value the highly informative content. The magazine is an ideal communication platform and partner for the Faymonville Group – who offer the complete transport solution for payloads from 15t to 15,000t… and beyond.

From the drivers’ viewpoint, HeavyTorque is a must-read for those interested or associated with the heavy haulage industry. The title is very informative on a wide range of projects - not only in the UK - but worldwide. On another note, it was a personal privilege (as a driver) to be invited to the industry awards evening, The Heavies… but to then be awarded 'The Heavies Hero' in 2017 was an amazing achievement. May I say a massive thank you to my fellow peers for their continued support and nominations!

A first class approach to the management and most importantly the quality of content makes HeavyTorque an obvious choice for us.
