Video Update: NJ-Bound 8M-Pound Structure Transported Down Hudson River
Tue August 08, 2017 - Northeast Edition Construction Equipment Guide
Parts for the HRSG were initially shipped to the port in November 2016, and since then, workers have been assembling the structure 24 hours a day, six days a week, according to Port of Coeymans General Manager Richard Robinson.(Photo Credit: Melanie Lekocevic).
The Port of Coeymans moved an 8-million-pound heating structure from the port onto a barge Aug. 2, for transport south on the Hudson River on its way to New Jersey.
It is the largest project of its kind ever in the U.S.
The structure is an HRSG — or Heat Recovery Steam Generator — that is being readied for transport to a power plant in Sewaren, N.J.
Jay Gorman, a relative of a Construction Equipment Guide employee, was able to take a video of the barge moving down the Hudson River to its destination.
