TTS has a long and proven track record in complex wind logistics. Leveraging this expertise and our industry resources, we provide logistics services to transport project cargo such as generators, turbines, transformers, refinery vessels, HRSG and other oversized cargo. Our clients turn to us to provide turnkey solutions (rail, rigging and heavy haul trucking) for all types of dimensional projects.
Our experienced team understands the intricacies of these complicated projects, and we have the project management skills necessary to get projects delivered on-time, on-budget and damage-free. Our project managers and field operations managers orchestrate the delivery of components with all the players – including vessel/barge operators, ports, railroads, crane/rigging companies and heavy haul truckers – and have the experience and know-how to get clients’ projects delivered successfully.
TTS also has a 20-axle Schnabel railcar and can transport all types of heavy (up to 450 tons; 900,000 pounds) and oversized loads. This railcar shifts to maneuver around obstructions and is ideal to move heavy transformers, turbines and generators.
This car was originally designed for certain General Electric, ABB, and Westinghouse transformers. However, TTS has designed adapters that will allow almost any transformer design (including 7-Leg designs) to be moved using this railcar. TTS has some of the most experienced operators in the industry to ensure that your project is delivered on schedule, and damage free. Also, the usage fee for this Schnabel car is one of the lowest in the industry, and costs are minimized as only 2 operators are typically required for this railcar. Additionally, TTS can provide technical drawings, develop shift plans, and provide full scope logistics support for these complex projects.
