ALE completes record breaking 3,000 tonne lift
16 May, 2018
EIC member company ALE has broken another industry record by performing the heaviest ever land-based crane lift using a jib while working on Total’s Egina FPSO module integration project in Lagos, Nigeria.
The FPSO ‘S2’ module weighs a total load of 2,810 tonnes and was lifted using ALE’s unique AL.SK350 crane and heavy duty jib.
ALE’s AL.SK350 crane was launched in 2013 with a lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes.
For the Egina project, ALE was contracted to lift and install six modules from the yard onto their final position on the FPSO. The lift weights were between 335 and almost 3,000 tonnes.
