Huge generator moves through Savannah

December 3 - The Georgia Ports Authority's (GPA) Ocean Terminal received a 269 tonne item of heavy lift cargo this month bound for the SCANA electricity plant in Jasper County.

The cargo, a stator, is a replacement piece for a generator turbine at the Jasper plant. According to a port authority statement, efficient movement of this type of cargo requires a proactive approach. Six months prior to the stator's arrival, the parties involved began meeting to discuss the move. The collaboration included GPA personnel, Turner Transfer, Wallenius Wilhemsen Logistics and Alstom Power. The physical movement of the part was made by Turner Transfer.

"The delicate task of moving such a unique piece of cargo comes through collaboration and close communication," said GPA's general manager of Breakbulk, Warehouse and Crane Operations, Craig Kessler. "Safety is our number one priority, and these teams worked together to ensure this piece was delivered to the customer without injuries or damage to the cargo."
