SRT recently handled the shipment of power boilers (HRSG's) from a Southern California port to the Las Vegas, NV area. The units arrived in 2 shipments that were direct discharged from ship to railcars. The first shipment of 12 units arrived on October 31st, and SRT's crews worked the Halloween weekend loading and tying down these units.
The second shipment of 8 units arrived on Thanksgiving Day, 11/26, and began discharging on Friday, 11/27. SRT's crews again worked the holiday weekend loading and securing these units. We had a limited amount of time available to complete tiedowns for both shipments, as the port had other ships and cargo scheduled at the same berth shortly after our discharges. Units were 83'L x 7'-6"W x 13'-0"H (average dim's) and weighed from 223,000lbs to 264,000lbs. Both shipments delivered to the jobsite ahead of schedule.
