Units Mirrlees KVP 16 Majour
purchased by tender from a government utility in Queensland, Australia
and our company dismantled the units and
transported them to Brisbane port for dispatch to La Union,
Philippines. They were stored in Brisbane for 3 months as we
had to wait for the end of the typhoon season to enable us
safe unloading at their destination. Once they arrived at La
Union Port they were transferred from the ship onto a barge
for transport to the site. At the site we had prepared a ramp
out into the bay for unloading the units which weighed 93
2 x 4.6 Mirrlees KVP16 Majour MK II at
the Port in Brisbane.
Covered & waiting for ship to La Union, Philippines.
A heavy lift company “AALTAFIL”, from Manila were contracted to carry out this
operation of unloading all of the plant from the vessel to the
site. We had previously prepared
foundations for the engines and they were unloaded direct
from the low-bed trailers onto the foundations, the remainder
of the installation and commissioning then took place. New alternators
were purchased from Brush Electrical in UK as the units were
50 hz operation in Australia and Philippines operates at 60 hz.
