Fesco gets the wheels turning

August 30 - Fesco Transportation Group is overseeing the delivery of two hydraulic turbine wheels from St Petersburg to the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station, Russia.

The wheels, manufactured at the Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod (LVZ) factory by Power Machines measure 8.5 m in diameter and weigh 221.4 tonnes (244 tons).

Prior to loading, the quayside at the departure port was reinforced and levelled, while a survey of the water depth was conducted to ensure the vessel could be safely secured. A floating crane and pontoon were used to load the turbine wheels onto a vessel for the voyage via the White Sea Canal, the Northern Sea Route and then along the Yenisei river all the way to the docks of the Krasnoyarsk power station in central Russia.  The expected transit time is 30 days.

On arrival at Krasnoyarsk, the units will be offloaded to modular trailers and delivered to the power station.

Fesco will also transport 145.2 tonnes (160 tons) of auxiliary equipment overland to the power station.

A video of the project can be viewed here.
