Fracht keeps EC Nowa Czechnica project moving through December
Developments in Poland are keeping the Fracht FWO Polska team busy throughout December, especially the EC Nowa Czechnica project. Fracht FWO Polska has continued delivering equipment for the new Combined Heat and Power plant being built in Siechnice near Wroclaw.
The most recent delivery included a steam turbine and a generator from Germany. The key element for this delivery was the turbine, which, due to its weight of over 125 tons and dimensions of 1078 x 550 x 425 cm, could not be delivered to the construction site by the shortest, direct route. The only possible way to get to the construction site was to organise transport through Germany and the Czech Republic and enter Poland from the south. It took eight nights for the convoy with the turbine.
The organisation of the transport required the proper selection of specialised road trailers, thorough analysis of the route and agreeing it with the road administration, GDDKiA, obtaining all necessary permits and preparing a schedule, and it was only part of a typical service performed by the Fracht FWO Polska project cargo team.
Due to the weather conditions and the shape of the route, Fracht FWO Polska used a set of a four-axle tractor with a modular semi-trailer and an auxiliary tractor. The delivery of the generator weighing 97 tons and measuring 815 x 349 x 330 cm was not that demanding and took place along the optimal, shortest delivery route. Both elements arrived at the construction site on December 21.
So far Fracht FWO Polska delivered a gas turbine set for the project, consisting of two gas turbines, each weighing approximately 95 tons and two generators of similar weight. Additionally, the company also delivered four boilers each weighing over 84 tons.
