SRT-TS Handles Another Large HRSG Shipment to Pennsylvania

SRT recently handled the shipment of 20 carloads of Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG's) moving from a Northeastern US port to Pennsylvania. These pieces arrived in two shipments, and were received from the ocean vessel in direct discharge to railcars. The HSRG units ranged in weight from 260,000# to 320,000#, with overall dimensions of 97' L x 10'-8" W x 13'-6" H. SRT was responsible for providing railcars, rail clearances, engineered securement plans, and loading supervision for these loads. Since the HSRG's were longer than the load cars, idler cars (empty flat cars) were required to protect the load overhangs. This resulted in shipping consits of 20 railcars, with an overall length of more than 1/4 mile. 


SRT-TS Delivers Over 1.8 Million Pounds of Power Equipment


Recently, SRT Transportation Solutions delivered a shipment of generators and engines to Oklahoma, This project required several months of planning and collaboration between the railroads, engineering departments, and SRT. Several bridge upgrades were required so that delivery would be possible. SRT worked with engineering firms and clearance engineers to determine what repairs were needed. Additionally, SRT worked with the heavy haul and rigging company to make sure that they could meet their schedule. In the end, everything came together for a smooth and safe execution of the project. 


Another Successfuly Turn-Key Shipment for SRT-TS

At the beginning of the year, SRT Transportation Solutions shipped four transformers to Indiana. The timing for the arrival of the vessel along with the placement of railcars was crucial to the execution of this project. We worked closely with the railcar owners to find the railcars necessary to execute the project as time was of the essence. We coordinated with the rigger at the destination so that the offload would be seamless. All of our planning paid off; everything happened just in time while paying close attention to safety.
