Heavy lift specialist ALE is opening an office in Basra, Iraq.

It will be the first facility for ALE in the country. The company claimed it is also the first major global heavy lift, transportation and installation company to establish a permanent base in the country.

Richard Peckover, ALE executive director, said the city of Basra was chosen due to its strategic location at the heart of Iraqi oil developments. "The new Iraq office will allow us to offer a more complete service in this key geographic area. We are currently involved in projects in Iraq and are looking forward to offering our complete set of services within Iraq."

Alberto Pittaluga has been appointed as ALE's manager in Iraq. Pittaluga has worked in the heavy lift project sector for many years, said Peckover, "We wish him well in this position."
