JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd have successfully removed over 1000tonne of gas turbine generator equipment in Scotland. The two lines that each were made up of a gearbox (45,000kg), turbine (240,000kg) and generator (224,000kg) were all removed from there working positions using and combination of the hydraulic lift system, jacking & skidding and modular trailers and placed on stools ready for transport down to the port for shipping.
The complex high profile project that was time sensitive, was completed well within the scope with the least disruption to other works continuing within the power station and without incident. Due to site restrictions, a neck 10 modular trailer was used to transport the pieces to the storage area on site, this trailer was also utilised to help the customer with the movement of other pieces within power station whilst on site. With our in-house resources of specialised equipment and experienced hard working employees, the project was a complete success.
