Hansa Meyer Successfully Completes Complex Shipment of Turbine Shafts from Italy to Canada

Hansa Meyer, the renowned international freight forwarder, achieved a commendable feat by smoothly transporting three massive turbine shafts from Savona, Italy, to Fort St. John, Canada. Each turbine shaft, weighing an impressive 92 tonnes, serves as a vital link between the turbine and generator, facilitating the generation of continuous power with exceptional efficiency.

The process began in Savona, Italy, where the experienced team at Hansa Meyer efficiently loaded the turbine shafts onto specialized MAFI trailers. Ensuring the delicate balance of the shafts during loading was crucial to ensure their safe transportation across the seas.

The next stage involved a transatlantic voyage from Italy to the port of Baltimore, USA. The careful stowing of the shafts aboard the vessel was crucial to safeguard them from the unpredictable forces of the ocean.

Upon reaching Baltimore, the shafts were transferred to railcars for onward travel to Fort St. John, Canada. The precision and expertise demonstrated during this transition minimized the risk of damage.

Finally, after traversing the vast North American terrain, the turbine shafts reached their destination at Rail Station Fort St. John, Canada.

Hansa Meyer’s successful execution of this complex shipment highlights the critical role of professional freight forwarding companies in the global supply chain. The safe and efficient transportation of these turbine shafts underscores the significance of such components in power generation worldwide.

This achievement stands as a testament to the ingenuity and collaboration that drives the world of freight forwarding and power generation, showcasing the remarkable feats made possible by human endeavor.
