More details have been revealed on the heavy lift project being undertaken at Total’s Antwerp petrochemical complex by ALE and Aertssen.
First announced in mid-November, the project will be undertaken by ALE and Belgian company Aertssen, the first job to be performed by the joint venture.
A load of 1,050t, measuring 24m long, 11m wide and 23m high, will be transported 5km along Scheldelaan, from a quay to the refinery. Set for delivery on December 2, it will represent the largest-ever cargo to pass through the Port of Antwerp.
The job is one part of a six-month project which ALE and Aertssen began in October for Total. The joint venture has been transporting modules using 80 axle lines of SPMTs, and installing the modules using telescopic and crawler cranes.
