Blue Water in turbine transport

Blue Water Shipping has transported a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) steam turbine from Industrial Terminals in Houston to a BASF refinery in Port Arthur.

The turbine, which measured 8.32 m x 7.13 m x 6.04 m and weighed 115.8 tons (105.1 tonnes), initially had to be moved from the terminal to MHI’s facility in Pearland for packaging. For the 60-mile (96.6-km) route, the turbine was accompanied by two civilian escorts, a high pole truck and six police motorcycles.

After conducting route surveys, obtaining super load permits and removing route obstructions, Blue Water Shipping began moving the turbine from Pearland to the refinery. Blue Water Shipping added that circuitous route totalled nearly 310 miles (498.9 km).

Watco Companies acquired the leasehold ownership of Industrial Terminals from Industrial Maritime Carriers (IMC) and Intermarine in 2018.
