Power cable reels sail from Europe to USA

BNSF Logistics, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for the USA, managed through their Houston Global Project Center a shipment of six reels with a total weight of 184.000 Lbs from Antwerp to a private jetty at the Jensen Beach, FL Power Plant.

The reels were loaded in Antwerp on a Spliethoff Vessel (M/V Slotergracht) for the voyage to Palm Beach Port in Florida. At Palm Beach Port all reels were directly discharged to a barge and transported to Jensen Beach.

The cable will be spooled off on the ocean floor crossing the intra-coastal waterway from the power plant on the island to the main land and are replacing the overhead cables currently used.
