The construction site of Maasbracht Claus C powerplant is quite busy these days. An international community of German, Spanish and Dutch workers is busy with the construction of this unique extension project of Essent. This week, Wagenborg Nedlift, who executes the logistics of the heavy power train parts, had a milestone. The first power train was completely installed onto foundation. With barge transports, the heavy parts of 300 to 400 tons each were transported via river from Rotterdam to Maasbracht. Via a roll-off operation, the parts were brought on land. From there, SPMTs transported the items to the turbine building. With a skid system the cargo was offloaded from trailer and brought inside the turbine building. There a new challenge for the Wagenborg crew popped up: the narrow space for the installation works. Of course, a method statement was developed during project preparation phase: the skid system was installed on the existing foundation elements. Lowering the items onto their foundation was done easily that way and the complete power train was installed. The second train will be installed before the end of this year and the third one early 2010.
