Boilers made in Tuticorin to be shipped to Sharjah

Assembled boilers manufactured in Tuticorin are getting ready to be exported through the port here.

On 1st April, two boilers each measuring a length of 16 metres, a height of 8 metres, and weighing 105 tonnes, manufactured by a private unit here were moved from its yard premises to the port.

They were shipped to the Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) in the United Arab Emirates, on April 4.

"The boilers are will used in a desalination plant set up by the SEWA," said B. Pattabhiraman, managing director, G B Engineering Limited, which produced the boilers.

The boilers were transported from the yard to the port on a truck with 10 hydraulic axles and 80 tyres.

The police regulated the traffic along the route and the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board switched off overhead transmission systems, wherever it was needed, to ensure smooth transportation of boilers to the port.
