Allelys, THLG member for the UK, have recently contributed to a heat exchanger project in Teesside, by delivering a series of vessels from Teesport to Lazenby.

Allelys original scope of work was to receive and deliver two large vessels, the first being 30m long and weighing 130te and the second 12m long and weighing 29te. However, this scope increased when Allelys were further contracted to deliver additional loads to site consisting of 5 smaller vessels weighing up to 4.5te and two ancillary boxes.

Although the route was reasonably short in distance, the specific requirements necessary to successfully deliver the cargo, had to be thoroughly planned and executed. Due to the specifics of the loads, the route had to travel through the British Steel and Teeswork sites, which added complexities as the cargo would have to be transported over four sets of rail tracks.

Allelys planned the operation to deliver the loads in convoy, to minimise disruption and accelerate the delivery time, utilising a 7 bed 6 axle trailer for the 130te vessel, a 3 axle wafer deck for the 29te vessel and a flat bed trailer for the smaller vessels and ancillary boxes. Allelys provided and laid steel plates around each of the rail tracks to support the loads and gain access to the delivery area. Once the deliveries reached their destination, the two larger pieces were offloaded using the trailers hydraulics and the smaller loads were offloaded using Allelys’ hiab.

“The project showcases how Allelys treat each and every project with the same diligence. Although the route itself was short, understanding and overcoming the complexities around it were vital for the loads to be delivered successfully”, commented Simon Davies, Project Manager at Allelys.
