ALE has demonstrated its multi-service capabilities to complete work on a project involving the transportation of a turret mooring system, weighing 3,702t, in Johor, Malaysia. The turret project started back in March 2015. ALE was contracted for the weighing, transportation and load-out of the system as part of a project to transfer the turret to Korea where it was subsequently installed onto a ship’s hull. ALE’s scope presented a challenging operation as there was limited space available during the transportation. ALE managed to successfully navigate this as well as negotiate 90 degree turns in narrow areas.
Ariff Mustaffa, ALE Project Engineer said, “We are delighted to have successfully completed the work on this project. Our team have worked really hard and it paid off when we were able to complete the mating of the turret head and the turret support structure with a tolerance of just 6mm. Close accuracy has been vital throughout the whole operation and it’s a testament to the skill of our personnel that these manoeuvres have been carried out so well.”
