ALE has successfully completed the transport and load-out of five modules for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation’s ICP-R process platform project in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The project is a part of the redevelopment of the Mumbai High South offshore oilfield and comprises a main structural frame, a building module, a process module, a turbo generator and a compressor module.

Ale provided the transportation of the modules, which weigh between 1,400t and 2,850t, one of which is 45m high.

The firm delivered an engineering solution that allows the frame to be shifted by self-propelled modular transporters, which will use specially modified transverse beams to spread the load without overstressing the transporters.

A total of 154 axle lines and 18 ballasting pumps were used for the project.
