Crowley delivers incinerator

February 10 - Florida-based Crowley Maritime Corporation's logistics and liner services groups completed the transport of an incinerator to Tortola, British Virgin Islands (BVI) to replace the island's existing trash disposal unit.

The island government contracted Crowley to move the incinerator from the US manufacturer. The 42 individual pieces required specialised equipment including 10 flatbeds and four open-top containers. The largest of the pieces was 10m long and 4m high and wide and weighed 36.2 tonnes. The total weight of the incinerator was more than 235 tonnes. Crowley used its ro-ro service to transport the consignment.

 

Once installed, the new unit will double the amount of rubbish that can be incinerated daily, especially important in the busy winter tourist season and to deal with year-round cruise ship calls.
