ALE performs its first lift with its new Terex CC 8800-1 crawler

The first job for international heavy transport and lifting company ALE's new Terex CC 8800-1 lattice boom crawler crane was a 1,457 tonne reactor lift in Sines, Portugal.

The reactors were transported from Italy to Portugal using a 1,800 tonne capacity self-geared vessel. 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 the CC8800-1. Tailing was done with an ALE-designed gantry.
