Transporting a draft tube cone and part of a scroll case-Sep-2009

Transporting Logistics

One of the biggest challenges on the project is transporting the vast amount of material required at the site.

This includes all the supplies for the construction works including the vast amount of excavators, off-highway trucks, drill rigs, cranes, and access equipment plus all service parts, wear parts, fuels and lubricants - there is no local dealer close by.

In addition. are all provisions for the vast labour-force who have to be accommodated .

With some of the final installations able to begin, this required transporting exceptionally large units - some up to 9 m diameter - a distance of more than 270 kilometers.

Transporting these large components required total closure of some main roads while the numerous convoys made their way to the Nemiscau workcamp, which was to become a central distribution area.

For the pen-stocks alone, eighteen sections of armouring were transported by nine convoys and three deliveries of draft-tube elbow lining.

oncrete work is finished at Rupert spillway. The focus is now on mechanical and electrical systems for the gates and hoistsOn any project of this type there are numerous contractors involved. On the works described, the key contractors include Alstom, CRT-Hamel, EBC-Neilson s.e.n.c., SBC-EMF, Simard-Beaudry Construction Inc., Fernand Gilbert Limitée (FGL), Voith Hydro Inc, Cegerco – Inter-Cité (CIC) and Excavations Marchand et Fils (EMF).
