ALE has completed the final module load-out for the Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities in Thailand in January 2016.
ALE’s Thailand branch was contracted by CUEL Ltd to perform the load-out, site move, and weighing of total 151 modules of inter-connect piperacks, jetty piperacks and slug catcher area and pig receiver PAU’s. ALE utilised a maximum trailer arrangement of 120 axle lines and five power pack units throughout the operations.
The contract was completed on the 14 January, coinciding with the 30th sea voyage from CUEL’s construction yard at Laem Chabang Port, Thailand, to Bladin Point in Darwin, Australia.
ALE received an award from CUEL Limited for World Class Safety Performance, as the team achieved 732 consecutive days without a loss time injury during the project.
ALE’s Engineering Manager, Worrasak Noenpa, commented: “ALE were required to complete the complex module loadout engineering design in collaboration with CUEL and the main contractor. Whilst it was challenging, we made sure all risks were mitigated and we found that the adjacent sea wall offered protection from wind and sea swells, ensuring relatively risk-free load-outs. I’m really proud of the Thailand team’s hard work throughout this long-term project and this is the evident reflected in the quality of the operations. This is a testament to ALE’s training regime, making the receipt of CUEL’s prestigious safety award even more rewarding.”
