Allelys, THLG member for the UK, have recently supported an energy from waste project by offloading 23 items from the vessel, placing them into temporary storage and then transporting them to site.
The units, which arrived into Immingham port were stooled off ready for self-loading. The 23 units including superheaters and a drum, were received over a two day period using three heavy haulage trucks and modular trailers.
The pieces measured up to 19.75m in length and almost all of the pieces were over 4m wide, with the largest being 4.95m.
Once the site was ready for the units to be delivered, Allelys were required to transport them in pairs, with a maximum of two deliveries per day due to site constraints. The team also had to work to specific time slots to arrive on site in Shepshed, Loughborough.
The majority of the units were transported using modular neck 7 trailers. However, the largest and heaviest piece, the drum, required a bespoke 5 axle beam trailer to be built in house due to it measuring 19.75m in length and weighing 80te. In addition to the transport, Allelys also provided all escort services for the project.
"This was an interesting project for the team to work on due to the agility and flexibility it required," explains Jamie Woodland, Assistant Transport Manager at Allelys.
"The vessel berthing date was unstable due to weather conditions, so it was essential to provide our customer with a flexible service to meet the project milestones. Additional equipment, including an extra truck and trailer were also required at short notice. Our extensive equipment fleet at Allelys enabled us to meet these demands to ensure the project was completed successfully."
Allelys play a substantial role within the energy sector by supplying storage facilities, specialist transport and installation services to transmission and generating companies.
Our large equipment fleet enables us to offer the full factory to foundation service.
