CEA Myanmar Complete Export Transportation of Gas Turbine

CEA Project Logistics in Myanmar have recently carried out operations for the export transportation of a gas turbine unit from a power plant in Yangon. The 13tn turbine unit has been shipped to Japan to undergo repairs and refurbishment.

Due to the sensitivity of the instrumentation contained within the turbine unit, a 3-axled air suspension trailer was used to minimise any vibration to the equipment while being transported. During the lifting procedure, CEA also used a specifically designed and certified Surelift modular spreader beam provided by its sister company, CEA Engineering.

A 50tn mobile crane lifted the turbine unit onto the awaiting flat-rack container and the CEA special projects team manoeuvred the unit into position and secured it 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 final destination in Japan. Please see the below gallery for photos of the operations.
