Erhardt Projects’ Energy Unit has handled a major transportation operation from Spain to New York State for the country’s largest state-owned public power organization, a leader in promoting energy efficiency and electricity transmission initiatives with 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 kilometers of transmission lines.
7 power transformers weighing 132 tons each have been successfully transported in a single shipment from the port of Málaga in Spain to a major substation in upstate New York.
“The key to the success of this project lies in having our team on site one month prior to the transport operation, studying the area, selecting the best port of entry, and determining the most suitable transport option for the cargo we had to handle,” says Alberto Rodriguez Siguenza, International BDM and Operation Manager.
“It is very important to have boots on the ground where you are going to operate, to deal with the Port Authorities and the Department of Transport so as to bring peace of mind to customers and certainty about the proposed transport solution,” continues Alberto.
“Without doubt, the project came about as a result of our long experience in the U.S. market and our know-how in handling this type of cargo,” comments Alberto.
Erhardt Projects’ Energy Unit has been created to respond to the growing demand currently faced by energy companies worldwide for energy products ranging from electrical transformers to steam turbines and reactors.
“We accompany our customers, which are leading companies in the sector, at this time of growing demand, attending to their specific needs with a dedicated team of Engineers and Projects Managers specialized in the type of cargoes associated with their business,” concludes Rodriguez Siguenza.
