Talleyrand cargo generates buzz

July 21 - Stevedores employed by Seonus, a tenant at the Port of Jacksonville, USA, have unloaded a 108,000-lb (49-tonne) generator at the port's Talleyrand Marine Terminal.

The machinery, which according to Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport) is worth more than USD2 million, was manufactured in Germany and shipped from Belgium to the US port on board Spliethoff's general cargo vessel Dynamogracht.

The equipment will be transported to a manufacturing plant in the Midwest on board an 11-axle tractor trailer.

A video of the project can be viewed here.
