2nd RUNNER UP ENTRY 1 Caribbean power

11 April 2008

Emmert installed a fully assembled and operational low-speed diesel engine, weighing nearly one million pounds (454 tonnes), into an existing power plant in the Bahamas.

The engine was transported by sea from the Port of Houston in Texas, US and then driven off the ship on SPMTs to the entrance of the power plant.

An 85 foot (26 m) section of gantry rail had to be slid into position next to the engine under the platform on each side. This rail section had to have part of its bracing placed directly on the trailer. With the towers installed the header beams, including two 60 foot (18 m) main beams, were manoeuvred into position. There were 12 lifting points.
