Alevro secures contract to lift and shift largest modules for Bechtel on Pluto Train 2 Project in Australia.
Alevro, a joint venture between leading Australian engineering services provider, Monadelphous, and Italian heavy lift and transport company, Fagioli, has secured a contract with Bechtel to deliver heavy haul and heavy lift services at the Pluto Train 2 Project in Karratha, Western Australia.
Pluto Train 2 includes the expansion of the existing Pluto LNG facility, enabling gas to be processed from the Scarborough gas fields through a second processing train, as well as plant modifications and additional domestic gas infrastructure.
The infrastructure for the Project includes some of the largest modules to arrive on Australian shores, weighing up to approximately 4,500 tonnes, which Alevro are responsible for receiving, transporting and lifting to support project construction.
“We look forward to working with the Alevro team to safely deliver the Pluto Train 2 heavy haul program. Alevro’s approach to safety and quality closely align with our vison, values and commitments, which made the decision to partner with Alevro on this critical scope of work a simple one,” said Terry Klowss, Bechtel’s site manager.
Alevro is transforming the delivery of complex heavy industrial projects. A joint venture between Monadelphous and Fagioli, Alevro combines Monadelphous’ proven construction track record, with Fagioli’s world-class experience in engineering complex global heavy lifting projects.
Alevro provides a turnkey heavy lifting and shift service backed by engineering expertise, delivered by an integrated team. Our customers benefit from this synthesis from our ability to collaborate in solving seemingl insurmountable problems.
The combined construction expertise of Monadelphous with Fagioli’s global heavy lifting and shift capability position the Alevro joint venture uniquely to deliver superior outcomes for the Pluto Train 2 Project.
“A project of this magnitude requires unique capability, and Alevro has been called upon to deliver just that. Our approach reimagines the way construction is undertaken and integrated with heavy lifting, incorporating global
methodologies for the delivery of Pluto Train 2,” said Alevro Executive Committee member, Cristiano Cavallini.
Alevro will deliver the heavy haul program, including all associated engineering, receival of modules from ships and barges at port, alternative transport solutions utilising more than 150 axle lines of self-propelled modular
trailers (SPMT) and alternative lifting techniques to support the installation of modules utilising a bespoke towersystem and jacking system, not typically used for such projects in Australia. Early engineering has commenced,with the scope of work expected to be completed towards the end of 2024.
