Sines of success

By Euan Youdale07 September 2010

ALE transported reactors, weighing up to 1,457 tonnes, from Italy to the Sines refinery in Portugal. A 1,800 tonne capacity self-geared vessel was used to move the reactors before they were loaded on to 68 axle lines of self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT) and transferred to the refinery 7 km from the harbour. At the refinery the reactors were erected using a Terex Demag CC8800-1 crawler crane. Tailing was done with an ALE-designed gantry.
