Assembled In Hamburg – Siemens built a component of the ‘SeaFloat’ power generation plant ‘Estrella Del Mar III’ at the EPS site We successfully transferred the fully assembled component onto a deck barge. The base frame was constructed and assembled by our partner Pella Sietas GmbH. This is another example that with the right mindset a shipyard can be successfully involved in project other than ‘just’ building ships. The purpose-built frame was delivered to our assembly hall by utilizing the shipyard’s very own Kamag SPMT. Since the weight of the frame at 130 metric tons exceeded the capacity of our built in 80 mt overhead cranes, a gantry crane was deployed by our subcontractor Gustav Seeland GmbH. After completion of the entire assembly, the shipping weight weighed in at 400 mt and had dimensions of 25 x 7 x 5.5 meters. For the transport from the assembly hall to the deck barge, we deployed a strandjack system by Lastro, Duisburg and SPMTs by Schmidbauer GmbH & Co. KG, before the unit was transferred by using our shipyard Jucho crane. The floating power generation plant with a capacity of 145 MW will later be deployed in the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo.
End of December one customer used our hall for assembling a transport container with final dimensions of length 20.50 x width 7.56 x height 8.90 m and a total weight of 80.00 tons. The whole assembly steps took place as from beginning of December. At this point it was the largest piece that has been assembled at our facilities.
Together with our partner Gustav Seeland GmbH we transported the container from our hall up to our quayside. Stay tuned to see some pictures from loading onto pontoon.
We’d like to thank all involved parties for the great job.
As from June EPS can provide indoor space for assembly purpose. The space consists of two halls with a total space of approx. 5,500 square meter. The halls have overhead cranes from 16 tons SWL up to 80 tons SWL. Additionally the halls can be heated in winter time.
End of March we took delivery of the first of two bridge girders at our shipyard in Hamburg. This was part of the construction for a pedestrian bridge for the Hamburg light rail system planned for final assembly in our yard. This was accomplished indoors in our large machine shop buildings on our premises. With utilization of our overhead cranes, the final support structures as well as all glass panels were added and properly installed. The respective sections were 39 and 20 meters long and had individual weights of 72 and 100 metric tons when they were transferred to under hook by our own SPMTs (Kamag). There, the fully assembled sections were transferred to deck barges with our very own Jucho cranes. Upon arrival at their final destination they were unloaded at the ‘Elbbruecken’ (bridge crossings across the Elbe river) in Hamburg. The construction company Lamparter as contractor for the EPC Seeland early realized and appreciated the unique setup/service package offered by EPS for the successful execution of this assembly and transport job.
Ultimately, this was yet another example of our mantra: EPS - One location – various capabilities
We would like to express our gratitude to all parties involved for the excellent cooperation throughout.
Lately we discharged one turbine with a unit weight of 250 tons and moved it with our SMPT into our warehouse. The turbine will rest there for several weeks in order to execute final assembly steps. Additionally we are supplying our customer with scaffold construction and other services.
Afterwards the turbine will be loaded into a port barge for further transport.
Thanks to all parties involved.
Recently finished loading of several turbines with unit weight up to 230 tons for client Rolf Riedl GmbH, Hagen.
The units have been delivered by river barge, discharged on quay and re-loaded onto coaster including lashing, securing and welding.
Thanks to all parties involved
In April 2017 we finished another project. In this case 13 cable drums with a total weight of 560 metric tons have been delivered by truck. We stored them for several weeks until they’ve been
loaded onto a coaster. In Addition to the cargo handling EPS took care about the lashing, securing and dunnage.
Thanks a lot to all involved parties.
Since August 2016 our customer delivered abt. 62 standard trucks and 12 special trucks with machinery parts to our facility. We provided abt. 2,100 sqm of storage area until April 2017. After
receiving the shipping specifications EPS did the sorting and marking of all packages. Following, we did the stuffing and securing of abt. 64 standard container and 14 flat racks within days.
Lastly, we delivered the standard container by truck and the special equipment with port barge to the export terminal.
We thank all involved parties and we are happy that the next project already started.
