This work is due to last seven months. So far, ALE has lifted numerous heavy and Out of Gauge (OOG) items, weighing up to 270t, onto trailers from 10 vessels.
The new crane will also be supporting ALE – Wind Services’ projects throughout the region and is scheduled to install 15 wind turbine generators as part of a project in the north of Kazakhstan.
