In January 2017, Bolloré Logistics Houston handled an ocean chartered shipment for their customer APR Energy, the world’s leading provider of fast-track mobile turbine power, from Tasmania (Australia) to the USA, Jacksonville, Florida, via Savannah.
The shipment consisted of 47 pieces of mobile power plant equipment. The total weight shipped was 737 tons. The most challenging aspect of the operation involved three heavy lifts (turbines) which weighted 86 tons each.
Bolloré Logistics' Houston team, and especially Philippe Faria, Sales Director – US Gulf, and Idir Latreche, Export Manager – Africa, were on-site to supervise the unloading operations which took two days and saw interruptions on account of heavy rain storms.
Despite the storms, the operation was a complete success, wrapping up just before the holidays, thanks to the professionalism and dedication of the Houston Projects team.
