Atlas handles Hadera cargo

Atlas Logistics has handled the transport of heavy and out-of-gauge (OOG) components for the GE 140 MW gas turbine power plant project in Hadera, Israel on behalf of General Electric.

Atlas was responsible for all of the shipments that arrived in Israel by air and sea, including discharging the cargo from chartered vessels, intermediate storage, unstuffing of containers, road transport to the site and the placement of the equipment onto foundations.

The project, which started in March 2017, consisted of numerous OOG units, such as generators, transformers, steam turbines and gas turbines, ranging from 40 tons (36.3 tonnes) to 150 tons (136 tonnes) in weight.

As part of the project, a 100-ton (90.7-tonne) gas turbine was transported from France to Israel onboard an Antonov AN-124, and was delivered to the Hadera site and positioned on foundations in December 2017.

The long and complex project required advanced, extensive route and site surveys and coordination with the air and ocean carriers, ports and terminals, crane operators, stevedores, surveyors and engineers, said Atlas.

Atlas Logistics is a member of the WCA Projects network in Israel.
