Giant engines and equipment needed to build the new Belco North Power Station has arrived in Bermuda on a massive cargo ship.

The cargo of Jumbo Shipping’s Fairlane, moored at Front Street in Hamilton by the Number One Car Park, included four massive generators, spotted yesterday by The Royal Gazette.

The Netherlands-registered ship, classed as a heavy-load carrier, has two 400-tonne cranes.

The Fairlane is a little more than 110 metres long and transportation of its massive payload will require a series of traffic disruptions to get the equipment to its destination on Serpentine Road in Pembroke.
