Rhenus delivering for power station

Rhenus delivering for power station

(Posted on 14/01/20)

The heavy goods specialist, Rhenus Project Logistics, is currently

organising the transportation, handling and storage of 13 enormous MAN

diesel engines and their fixtures as part of a complex project. After having

been temporarily stored in Cuxhaven, the first six power generators arrived

in Turkey by ship at the end of November. They will be used there as a

floating power station.

The Rhenus Group is one of the leading logistics specialists with global

operations and generates annual turnover of EUR 5.1 billion.

Companies and important facilities like hospitals or schools often suffer

breakdowns if the power supply repeatedly fails in places with poor infrastructure.

The Turkish energy supplier Karpowership has developed a special solution to

cater for this scenario. Decommissioned bulk carriers, heavy-cargo ships and

inland waterway vessels are equipped with generators powered by LNG, diesel or

heavy fuel oil and they provide power supplies from the water as floating power

Rhenus Project Logistics launched the first part of the project in April – i.e.

transporting the MAN 18V51/60 TS diesel engines, which are 15 metres long, five

metres wide and almost seven metres high, from their production site in Saint Nazaire in France to Cuxhaven.

“Until we were able to ship the first engines to their place of deployment, they were

initially stored at the Cuxport terminal in a building with sufficient ceiling height so

that they were protected from any moisture,” says Marcus Janowsky, Project

Manager at Rhenus Project Logistics. The engines were moved on self-propelled

modular transporters (SPMTs) for this purpose.

Six of the 13 generators then set off on board the “BBC Lagos” on their way to

Tuzla in Turkey on 9 November. “The project is particularly important for us,

because it firstly demonstrates the excellent cooperation between the different

companies and units within the Rhenus Group. Secondly, handling this large and

bulky load overland and on the water always requires special sensitivity and very

precise planning – and we were able to provide this here,” says Marcus Janowsky, summarising the course of the project.
