Alstom barges in new power

March 3 - International engineering, procurement and construction contractor Alstom accepted its first gas turbine for the Carrington Power Station, utilising the nearby Manchester Ship Canal.

Abnormal Load Engineering (ALE) contracted Robert Wynn and Sons' barge, Terra Marique, to deliver the 400-tonne GT 26 turbine, before lifting the unit into place by crane, in order to help keep local roads as clear as possible.

"Given the size of the turbines and the complexity of the operation it was clear that using the canal was the best way to both get it to site and also to ensure we didn't cause any traffic issues. It was also, of course, the most environmentally friendly way to get the turbines to site which was something that we will always try to achieve," explained Wolfgang Puschitz, project director at Alstom.

Alstom is working with DF Energy to build the 880 MW power station for Carrington Power Ltd and it is scheduled to be commissioned during early 2016.
