Ale complete final load-out for Ichthys project onshore LNG facilities in Thailand

EBR Staff Writer Published 21 January 2016

Ale has completed the final module load-out for the Ichthys Project onshore LNG Facilities in Thailand.

ALE's Thailand branch were contracted by CUEL Limited 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.

The modules varied in weight from 24t to 1,928t and ALE utilised a maximum trailer arrangement of 120 axle lines and five power pack units throughout the operations.

The contract was completed on the 14th January, coinciding with the 30th sea voyage from CUEL's construction yard at Laem Chabang Port, Thailand, to Bladin Point in Darwin, Australia.

ALE was also proud to have 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, who managed the project and ALE's scope in Thailand explains the challenges faced by the team: "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."
