Fox Brasil Ship Turbine to US

Recently FOX Brasil Project Logistics has shipped a backpressure turbine  plus accessories from Brazil to North America.

The dimensions of the turbine were:

  • Length       6.10m
  • Width        4.20m
  • Height       3.20m

What makes this project special is that their customer has a sustainable business model.

For one single ton of paper produced, about 250m³ of water is needed. Through investments on new technologies included in this equipment, the recycling of the very same 250water, can reach a 92% level of recycling.

The FOX Brasil project team worked intensively on the complete planning and execution for the road transportation, from the shipper up to the port of loading. Main challenge was to manage the logistics restrictions during the covid-19 peak. Their work included:

  • Deadline to get the road permits
  • Restrictions for out of gauge cargo and adverse weather conditions
  • Find a suitable vessel to assure the cargo handling safety
  • Under deck shipment guaranteed
  • Shortest transit time to avoid delay on the project

The project was  accomplished with all the safety requirements on road and at the port. A safe move acheived not only for their clients, but also for their team and partners.

FOX Brasil Project Logistics is proud to be part of this sustainable project for another pulp & paper customer. They are the specialists for steam turbine, generators, condensers, boilers, gearboxes, transformers logistics.
