Oxbo on the double

Oxbo Mega Transport Solutions has coordinated the delivery and installation of ten engines and ten generators for a power plant project in southwest USA.

Weighing 158,400 lbs (71.8 tonnes), the generators measured 4.57 m x 3.96 m x 4.34 m; the engines weighed 642,840 lbs (291.6 tonnes) and measured 13.1 m x 4.1 m x 6.1 m.

Once the generators and 30 other components arrived at the project site by truck, Oxbo used platform trailers to move all of the items to the assembly area, where the units were moved into place using a gantry crane.

Using a gantry crane, Oxbo unloaded the engines from railcars and onto Goldhofer platform trailers for transport into a storage area.

In a few months, Oxbo will begin moving the engines on to their designated pads using a jack and slide system.

Meanwhile, Oxbo has transported two 355,110-lbs (161.1-tonne) transformers using a Goldhofer THP/CA dual lane transporter.

Each transformer measured 10.11 m x 3.71 m x 4.67 m. The entire configuration measured 118.8 m long and weighed 680.4 tonnes.

Upon arrival at the substation, crews used a jack and slide system to lower and set each transformer onto its pad.
