  • Aspen and Temisko model double Schnabel

阿灵顿,或者该州拥有众多风力发电场,其中包括美国第三大风力发电场. With a high demand for 风能, new 风能 components are regularly required to outfit new and established wind farms in the area. 

With limited labor available at the ports along the west coast, 澳门拉斯平台首页的客户是一家国际运输和物流公司 experienced specialized transportation company to deliver 82 风能 components from the 温哥华港 to a distribution center in Arlington. 因为交货时间在缩短,生产价值也在损失, ω澳门威斯人平台首页 波特兰 specialized transportation team stepped up to the plate to deliver a world-class solution.

SUPERLOADS AND SPECIALIZED PLANNING

Once our client reached out to ω澳门威斯人平台首页 协调取货和交货日期,并提供船员将运输的详细信息, 澳门拉斯平台首页的团队开始工作了. The 82 风能 components included 41 tower bases—37’8” long by 15’ in diameter and a weight of 136,686磅,41个塔的中间部分,长55英尺2英寸,直径13英尺9英寸,重137磅,789磅.

Due to the short timeline for completion, 项目经理立即着手为华盛顿州和俄勒冈州争取超负荷许可. 当运输配置的总重量超过200时,需要超载许可证,000磅. 这些许可证申请大约需要30天才能完成,因此及时性至关重要.

Because ω澳门威斯人平台首页 operates the destination distribution center (DC) and the 温哥华港 is a common loading origin for projects, our specialized transportation team did not need to perform site visits. 然而,澳门拉斯平台首页完成了详细的路线调查,以确保所有82个负载的无缝旅行.

The most challenging part of the planning process came from a large paving project directly outside of the port. It was hit or miss as to when it would impact the crew’s travel. Our project manager remained in coordination with the paving crew, construction contractor, and other carriers hauling wind cargo out of the port. Thanks to this coordination, 澳门拉斯平台首页的专业运输团队有一个围绕这些因素导航的运输时间表.

Because the project start was delayed, the team had to continually update the superload permits in preparation for interstate state transportation. 最后,在8月初,澳门拉斯平台首页的工作人员准备装载第一对组件交付.

HAULIN’ MASS—THE OMEGA MORGAN WAY

When the first loading day arrived, 澳门拉斯平台首页的船员开着澳门拉斯平台首页的阿斯彭和特米斯科双施纳贝尔拖车到达港口. Each trailer required four crew members, 包括一名司机, 前试点, 舵手, and a rear pilot car. To load each component, the port workers stripped off the hardware from the transport ship and placed the component on the ground. ω澳门威斯人平台首页 specialized transportation team then hooked the trailers to each end of the tube to lock it into place before raising the component off of its saddles. 然后,港口的工作人员将卸下鞍座,并为推出开绿灯.

拖车一到DC,澳门拉斯平台首页的工作人员就开始帮忙卸货. 经过专业的运输团队将每辆拖车放置在正确的位置, the DC crew would maneuver two saddles under the component. 然后, the trailers towered down, allowing the saddles to hold the total weight of the tube before pulling away from each end and reconnecting. Our crews would then head back to the port for another heavy load. 在任何给定时间, two to three of our double Schnabel trailers were making the 140-plus mile trek with one component each, for a total of 82 loads.

Thanks to our safe and efficient transportation, 欧米茄澳门威斯人平台首页在不到两个月的时间里交付了必要的风力组件. With no loss in production value, 然后,这些管道在完美的条件下及时运输到风电场组装. Our client was extremely happy with our transportation work as well as our operation of the distribution center. A job well done, all around.
