Generator worth $2 million moves through JAXPORT

[ July 21, 2017   //   ]

Highly trained stevedores at JAXPORT recently moved a 108,000-pound generator bound for a manufacturing plant in the Midwest through the port’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal.

The machinery, which is worth more than $2 million, was made in Germany and shipped from Belgium to JAXPORT in a wooden crate aboard the Spliethoff general cargo vessel Dynamogracht.

The stevedores involved in the operation are experienced in the movement of specialty, heavy-lift cargo and are employed by JAXPORT tenant Seaonus. The equipment will be trucked to the Midwest aboard an 11-axle tractor trailer.
