ALE installs wind turbine generators
23 July 2018
Heavy lift and transportation specialist ALE has completed the electro-mechanical installation of seven wind turbine generators (WTGs) for the Garayalde wind farm project in Argentina, South America.
ALE’s global electro-mechanical installation team and crane team worked together on the remote site, 260 km away from Puerto Madryn, and handed over the turbines fully assembled to the client.
Carlos Moreno, commercial manager for ALE Wind Services, explained the benefits of using specialist teams. “This was the first time we have executed this installation scope in Argentina and it was completed successfully because of our team’s flexibility, local expertise, installation knowledge and specialist equipment,” he said. “This was a complex project, made challenging by its remote location. With the team collaboration between many nationalities such as South African, Argentina, Spanish and Brazilian, our project management skills and installation experts could overcome the challenges and demonstrate our operational flexibility, global management and specialist wind capabilities for this market.”
