UK-headquartered global heavy lift and transportation specialist ALE has expanded its 300 tonne capacity Mega Jack 300 fleet with four new towers that will be available for civils projects throughout Europe.
The Mega Jack 300 jacking system was launched in 2018 and ALE describes it as “a compact and versatile system that offers a superior solution to traditional climbing jacks, across a wide variety of applications”.
The system was designed in-house by ALE’s R&D department with the aim of providing a cost-effective solution to jack-up heavy modules on sites where either space, or time to do the job, is restricted. 16 towers have already been used in Kuwait to jack-up hundreds of pipe rack modules more than 5 metres high.
The four new towers will be delivered to ALE’s UK branch where they will be used on a number of forthcoming bridge projects. They bring the total amount of towers in the Group’s global fleet to more than 20.
