Packaging and Preservation
Our client, a major manufacturer of power transformers for the most extreme conditions and demanding applications, suffered an unexpected failure in the packaging supplied by an NJ-based contractor. The original crate was of insufficient structural integrity to withstand lifting from underneath, risking injury to personnel, cargo damage and late shipment penalties.
Our client was preparing to ship replacement rotors to a power plant in Sonoma CA. The manufacturer couldn’t afford any schedule deviations due to the impact on other project components and the prospect of significant liquidated damages for late completion.
Our client is a $30bn revenue Fortune 15 manufacturer of power generation equipment. Though at the pinnacle of their industry, and capable of engineering and manufacturing the world’s most powerful and efficient gas turbine engines, our client faced logistical challenges with the shipment of the thousands of parts that, along with the turbines themselves, go into the installation of a power plant.
