Fracht Group delivers hydraulic valves to the US
Fracht Group’s Polish and United States (US) teams collaborated on the delivery of 30-tonne hydraulic valves to a hydroelectric power plant located in North Carolina, in the US, Bear Creek Hydro Station.
The hydraulic valves weighed 30 tons and were transported in a box measuring 4.340 metres by 3.170 metres, by 3.900 metres. Fracht handled the entire logistics chain of the door-to-door delivery, from the manufacturer in Poland to Bear Creek Hydro Station.
The valves were first shipped by Fracht FWO Polska from Poland to the Port of Charleston, South Carolina. They were then transported via road from the Port of Charleston to Thorpe Hydro Station, in Tuckasegee, North Carolina. Fracht USA was responsible for organising this section of the transport. From
From there, after being disassembled by the recipient into smaller parts, and secured onto a self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT) type transport platform, due to the difficult terrain around the river, the valve components went to their final destination: Bear Creek Hydro Station.
