FESCO delivers equipment to Akkuyu nuclear power plant in Turkey
FESCO Transportation Group (FESCO) says it has shipped equipment from the Rostov region to the Akkuyu nuclear power plant under construction in Turkey, including four steam generators of 358 tons each.
FESCO's experts built individual transportation schemes to execute this initiative. Steam generators, known as oversized and heavy machinery, were transported by purpose-built vehicles to the manufacturer to a specially constructed berth in Volgodonsk for loading on a vessel of the river-sea class.
In accordance with the plan established by a specialist project bureau, the positioning and fastening of the cargo was carried out.
Then the equipment was taken to Rostov-on-Don, where a total of 370 tons of general cargo had already been transported by rail. After being loaded, the ship left for the Vostochniy terminal near the port of Mersin in Turkey and arrived on the 19th of September.
After a Liebherr LR1800 crane with a lifting capacity of 800 tons had unloaded the machinery, the cargo was transported to the construction site for installation by purpose-built vehicles.
In 45 days, the project was implemented.
FESCO has vast experience in the transportation of large and oversized cargo, including nuclear power plant construction equipment in various countries. The focus areas for the company's business growth are expanding the number of contracts with main clients, as well as increasing its presence in the market for large-capacity and oversized cargo transport.
