ALE succeeds in lifting and load-out of 4 suction anchors in Egypt

ALE has recently completed the lifting and load-our of four suction anchors for the Zohr gas project, located in the Egyptian sector of the Mediterranean Sea.

The various manoeuvres took place in the Port of Alexandria where the four suction anchors were stored near the dock. Each of the columns had different weights and dimensions, ranging from 185t to 220t. The anchor parts were moved using a crawler crane with 850t capacity and a radius of up to 30m. In addition to these pieces, ALE has loaded-out other less imposing pieces such as a 65t circular hub and a 95t rectangular ladder piece. The ALE team completed the installation of all parts safely and within the deadline set by the client.
