WWL ALS move 95t Gas Turbine Rotor

Another successful project was completed as a 95 ton Gas Turbine Rotor is transported from Alexandria, Egypt to Belfort in France.

WWL ALS Moerdijk worked closely within the WWL network to coordinate and supervise the movement of a Gas Turbine Rotor with a high value close to USD 12,000,000 ensuring that it was handled in a safe and efficient manner.DSCF7965

The rotor piece with dimensions: L: 13. 97m x W: 4.01m x H:3.83m was shipped from Alexandria, Egypt on a WWL RO/RO vessel. With transshipment in Zeebrugge the rotor was loaded on a 120 ton Mafi trailer and protected with PE liner during sea voyage. It was then covered with tarpaulin and lifted into a barge and for its journey to Strasbourg.DSCF8016

Marine surveyors were employed for both Zeebrugge and Strasbourg to oversee the work at the Ports and ensure appropriate balancing of the rotor to avoid any collision, knocks or damages.

A further transshipment from barge and lift onto truck in Strasbourg was carried out for its final delivery to Belfort by 10 axle trailer.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
