Turbine Lift and Load-in at Shipping Port
A Siemens gas turbine arrived at the Samsun Sea Port destine for a new 600MW natural gas combined cycle power plant in Samsun, Turkey. The 482 ton turbine needed to be lifted and loaded onto a SPMT in order to be transported to the Cengiz Enerji power plant.
The Sarilar Group utilized a SBL1100 hydraulic gantry to lift the 482 ton turbine and lower it onto the SPMT. Once the turbine was lifted the SPMT was positioned under the hydraulic gantry. Using a wireless remote, a single operator was able to lift and lower the turbine. The process of transferring the turbine to the trailer was executed safely and with relative ease.
