January 12 - Braid Projects has transported 18 heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) from South Korea to the USA.
The oversize units were loaded onto a heavy lift vessel in Masan, before being shipped to a US port on the South Atlantic coast, ready for delivery to two power stations nearby.
On arrival at the port, the units were unloaded one-by-one using the ship's 450-tonne capacity crane onto an 18-axle Goldhofer trailer and delivered to the port's laydown area for storage on stools. The two largest modules were loaded onto trailers for direct transport to the jobsite.
The remaining cargo in the laydown area was later loaded and transported to the respective jobsites for discharge and installation.
Braid explained that road movement was prohibited between the hours of 7am - 9am, and 4 pm - 6pm, which made the delivery a challenge. In addition, the permitting process across the state also proved difficult, said Braid.
The transport of all 18 modules to the job sites took almost four weeks to complete.
Braid Projects is a member of the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN) in the USA.
