The port of Ipswich in the UK, owned and operated by Associated British Ports (ABP), has facilitated the movement of a generator, turbine and transformer for an energy project in East Anglia.

Heavy haulage specialist Allelys handled the heavy lift operation at the port, where the components arrived from Rotterdam aboard the general cargo ship Wilson Flex III. Now that the cargoes have been discharged, Allelys will transport the units to the project site across three consecutive Sundays, which started on October 22.  

Each load, according to ABP, will be about 80 m long and weigh 500 tonnes (inclusive of the trailer). This will be the biggest abnormal load ever transported in Suffolk.  

“ABP has been a vital and necessary partner in delivering this project, and we are grateful for everyone’s patience and cooperation as the components make their way across Suffolk to their final destination,” said Paul Ager, ABP divisional port manager.
