Recently, Allelys accomplished the delivery of a massive 176-ton steam turbine generator to the Port of Sutton Bridge in Spalding. This colossal unit measured 14m in length, 4.8m in width, and 4.5m in height.
Before the transportation process, Allelys meticulously conducted route studies from Peterborough to the Port of Sutton Bridge, identifying a feasible route. They also pinpointed any potential obstacles along the way, devised solutions, and coordinated with the relevant authorities to ensure compliance. Utilizing a specialized trailer in a 16-axle configuration, Allelys’ in-house engineering team designed the transport solution.
The steam turbine generator was loaded onto the modular trailer at a facility in Peterborough and safely secured. It then embarked on its journey to the Port of Sutton Bridge in Spalding.
The final leg of this project involved the use of Allelys’ LG1550 to unload the steam turbine generator onto a coaster vessel. This vessel was bound for Antwerp before heading to its ultimate destination in Singapore.
Shahid Islam, the Project Manager at Allelys, shared, “The 35-mile road journey took a total of 3.5 hours, and our transportation team meticulously monitored the entire journey to ensure a safe and successful delivery. For this operation, our team provided a complete full-service solution, covering engineering, route surveys, project management, transportation, and lifting. I am proud to say that our team flawlessly executed the lifting within a critical timeframe, prioritizing both team safety and project success.”
