Gas Heater Plant transportation

ALS coordinate transport of 150T Regeneration Gas heater Plant from Pembroke Dock to Etzel, Germany.

20th September 2010

The regeneration gas heater, comprising of a radiant and convection heater section and stack, plus ancillary equipment, weighing a total of 150 tonnes, was transported by road and coaster vessel to the AGF Viking gas over ground facility, in Etzel Germany.

The largest piece being the radiant section at 14mL x 5.6mW x 5.3mH and 56 tonnes.

ALS were responsible for receiving to coaster vessel at Pembroke dock, sea fastening, sea freight, discharge in Wilhelmshaven port and delivery to the gas facility 30km from the port.

The on carriage to site involved a challenging negotiation of Wilhelmshaven town centre proving to be the only route available subsequent to the route survey carried out by ALS prior to the movement. The operation was undertaken at night under police and private escort and ALS worked closely with accompanying council technicians for the removal of several sets of traffic lights and street furniture enroute.

A combination of equipment was utilised by ALS for this operation, consisting of mobile and port cranes for discharge, a vessel bridge trailer (running at only 40cms above ground level) and 2 extendable trailers for the stack sections. As the clearance was only 3cms this required extreme close attention whilst passing the awkward obstruction of the water pipe bridge.

Also due to ALS utilising this very low clearance trailer for transporting the radiant section, the client was prevented from having to shut off the major water pipe bridge, located just before the site entrance.

All cargo was delivered in a safe and timely manner, to the Gas facility in Etzel.
