CEA Team prepare trailer

Gas Turbine Transportation & Export

CEA Project Logistics Myanmar recently carried out operations for the transportation and export of a Gas turbine unit from a power plant in Yangon. The 13-tonne turbine unit was being shipped to Japan to undergo repairs and refurbishment.

Due to the sensitivity of the instrumentation contained within the turbine unit, a three-axle air suspension trailer was used to minimise any vibration to the equipment while being transported. During the lifting procedure, CEA used a specifically designed and certified Surelift modular spreader beam provided by sister company CEA Engineering.

A 50 Tonne Mobile Crane lifted the turbine unit onto the awaiting flat-rack container. A CEA special projects team manoeuvred the unit into position and secured it onto the flat-rack ready for transportation. Before leaving for the port, an inspection by a third party sea freight warranty surveyor was carried out to approve and certify the cargo for international shipping. CEA provided a one-stop service for export documentation, loading, lashing and shipping to the turbines final destination in Japan.
