Project Logistics for Power Plant Components from Siemens Berlin to Theiss Power Plant

Transport of 30 power plant components by barge from Berlin via Krems with onward carriage to the Theiss power plant.

The thermal power plant Theiß, located in Lower Austria, is the most powerful power plant of EVN AG in Lower Austria with a capacity of about 800 megawatts. It produces both electricity and district heating for the city of Krems. The power plant can guarantee a continuous output by being able to start up without any supply of electricity from the grid. The power plant consists of two blocks, the first of which was commissioned in 1974 and the second in 1976. Three back-up gas turbines also belong to the thermal power plant. One of these three gas turbines was used for construction but was purchased from Norway for general refurbishment.

In order to transport this gas turbine for the thermal power plant from Berlin to Krems, Schmidbauer was commissioned to provide support. Schmidbauer provided an inland vessel with the required capacity for the transport, supervised the loading activities in the Berlin harbor, and provided a harbor crane for unloading the barge as well as two telescopic cranes for unloading the heavy components. On site Schmidbauer also supported the assembly of Siemens' own SPMT and JS-125 Gantry. Schmidbauer accompanied and supported the transport of the gas turbine with its own special vehicles along the entire route from the port of Berlin to Tisza.
