Heavy-lift specialist ALE has been contracted to provide module trans-shipment operations for the Yamal LNG project and has been working on the project since preparation stages in 2015.
The company is currently providing trans-shipment operations of the Yamal LNG project’s modular intermediate storage yard (MISY) at the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium.
ALE’s scope on Yamal LNG project encompasses services for load-in of modules shipped from Asian fabrication yards, jack-down and storage of the modules in a dedicated laydown yard and load-out of the modules for onward shipment to Sabetta.
The company is also heading a joint venture company created with Ieamants and ICO to manage the MISY contract.
Yamal LNG includes construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Sabetta on the Yamal peninsula and will have an output capacity of around 16.5 million tons per year, using the South Tambey field as a resource base.
As part of the project execution, Yamgaz, the joint venture led by TechnipFMC with JGC and Chiyoda who are designing and constructing the LNG plant, required an intermediate storage yard for both modules and breakbulk equipment items which are trans-shipped to Sabetta during the winter.
