176t Steam Turbine Generator Transported from Peterborough to Sutton Bridge by Allelys

Allelys have recently completed the successful delivery of a steam turbine generator to the Port of Sutton Bridge, Spalding. The dimensions of unit were:

  • Weight 176t
  • Length   14m
  • Width      8m
  • Height     5m.

Prior to the transport, Allelys completed route studies from Peterborough to Port of Sutton Bridge and identified a viable route. All pinch points along the route were identified, solutions were devised, and the relevant authorities were advised. This ensured that any adjustments were completed, and conditions were met along the route. Allelys’ inhouse engineering team designed a transport solution using a specialist trailer in a 16-axle configuration.

The steam turbine generator was successfully loaded and securely lashed onto the modular trailer at a facility in Peterborough and the journey to Port of Sutton Bridge, Spalding was completed.

The final stage of the project utilised Allelys’ LG1550 to offload the steam turbine generator onto a coastal vessel, bound for Antwerp for trans-shipment to its final destination in Singapore.

“The 35 mile road journey took a total of 3.5 hours travel time and the entire journey was meticulously monitored by our transportation team to ensure safe and successful delivery,” explained Shahid Islam, Project Manager at Allelys.

“For this operation, our team undertook the complete full-service solution, including engineering, route surveys, project management, transportation and lifting. I am proud to say that the team executed the lifting flawlessly within a critical allotted time frame, and above all, ensured the safety of our team and the project.”
