Cranes were used during the construction phase of the Potrooms handling potshells, busbars and superstructures. Power for crane operation was from crane mounted diesel generators as no permanent power supply systems installed at that time. On completion of the Construction, cranes were removed, modified as required and relocated for use in other operational areas of the Smelter, Ace Crane Systems also supplied 28 additional ABUS cranes to Emirates Aluminium, with capacities from 2.5tonnes up to 30tonnes, for operation in workshops, stores and plant maintenance areas, Ace Engineering provided complete on-site service support 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for the duration of the Construction period.
