Altius Coordinates Sea Transport of 195 ton Reactor



A 195-ton reactor measuring 28 x 5 x 4 meters, was unloaded at the port of Houston last September14th.

The reactor had been loaded onto the ship Pijlgracht de Spliethoff in the port of Bilbao on the12th of August. Following a difficult voyage where, due to Hurricane Dorian, the ship was compelled to find shelter in Baltimore and Chesapeake for a week; it finally reached port on September14th.

The above was just the sea transportation of the most critical component for the Fulcrum Biomass Plant, which is being constructed by Abengoa in McCarren, Nevada. The the last leg of the journey still lies ahead, a long way by road (almost 2,000 miles/3,218 km) for said component to reach the Plant.
