On September 19, in Serpukhov, from the manufacturing plant of ZiO-Podolsk, the railway transporter delivered another steam generator intended for the Belene nuclear power plant. In total, eight PGV-1000 will be transferred to Bulgaria. Arrived in mid-September, the cargo was the fourth in a row.
One of the steam generators was loaded onto a barge for shipment to the northern capital. On the territory of the “Oka career management” on Lake Pavlenskoye, a berthing facility was built, where the self-propelled vehicle Cometto delivered the cargo. The transportation took about an hour.
Initially, we planned to send steam generators along the river in pairs, “project manager Sergei Baranchuk tells us,” but the water in Pavlenskoye Lake dropped significantly, and the barge with such a heavy load would simply run aground, so it was reinsured and loaded only one steam generator. As soon as the water level approaches the mark we need – it will be possible to transport two super-oversized vans on the barge, which will save considerable time.
The barge “Spetstyazhavtotrans” went with a steam generator on board towards St. Petersburg. On September 22, the Muscovites were able to enjoy the spectacular spectacle – the “giant” sailed through the Moscow canal.
