What is longer than a football field, 2 1/2 school buses wide and weighs more than 323 Toyota Prius’? A GTZ Project Logistics Shipment.
The GlobalTranz Project Logistics team transported three generator skids from a Midwest manufacturing facility to the Port of Houston, TX, for furtherance to South Korea for final assembly. The units will be used to power a new offshore oil platform in the Republic of Congo.
The GlobalTranz team spent over 12 months developing and engineering a multi-modal transportation plan, working with state and local authorities and coordinating each step of the project. GlobalTranz provided the Self-Propelled 12-Line Goldhofer Modular Transporter to remove the generator skids from the manufacturer’s assembly bay and transload to a specialty Dual-Lane Suspension Beam Trailer for over-the-road transport.
Once loaded to the Dual-Lane Trailer, our crews transported each unit 130 miles from the manufacturer to a port facility located on the Ohio River. Upon arrival, GTZ transferred each generator skid from the Dual-Lane Trailer to the Self-Propelled 12-Line Goldhofer Modular Transporter in order to access the riverfront bulkhead and perform a roll-on transfer operation to the barge.
Careful planning and engineering were required to transfer the generator skids to barge, place in an elevated stow and sea-fasten them for the 2,015-mile journey. Each unit traversed the Ohio River, Mississippi River, and the Intercoastal Waterway.
The Massive transport configuration was the largest to be permitted in the state of Texas.
