September 11 - Switzerland-based General Transport and BNSF Logistics Canada have transported a motor from the General Electric (GE) factory in Peterborough to the Port of Oshawa, Canada.
The shipment included a hyper stator, which weighed 108 tons (98 tonnes) and measured 8 m x 4.6 m x 5.8 m; and a rotor which weighed 130.7 tons (118.6 tonnes) and measured 10.2 m x 4.4 m x 3.4 m.
For the transport to the Port of Oshawa, BNSF Logistics Canada and General Transport conducted bridge surveys and traffic management plans, which included lifting overhead power lines.
