Generator Refurbishment Project – Mexico to/from NCClient Name: Power plant in Mexico
Project Location: Valle Hermoso, Mexico to/from Pineville, NC
Completion Date: 07/31/2012
TTS transported a generator from a power plant near Valle Hermoso, Mexico to a Siemens repair facility in Pineville, North Carolina, and then back to Mexico. Because things were so unstable in the area, the client arranged for security to be provided by the Mexican army (a team of 30 men) to protect the loading and movement of the generator. The TTS team managed the project from end-to-end, including engineering design, clearance drawings, securement designs, crane work, shipment tracking and custom securement welding. After the generator was cleaned and maintained in North Carolina, TTS had to transport the generator back to the power plant in Mexico via special train service to meet the customer's outage schedule at the power plant. Despite significant safety and security challenges, the cargo was delivered (and returned) on-time, on-budget and damage free, with no injuries.
