Project Name:

Israel Power Support Alpha

Project Location:

Hamburg, Germany


U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Client’s Scope:

ISI was competitively selected to procure and deliver 179 new diesel generators with required accessories and certifications to Hamburg, Germany. The generators ranged from 10kVA to 200kVA in size and were required to be packed in preparation for ground transportation to the Port of Hamburg by ISI within 30-days of contract award, then sea shipped from Hamburg, Germany to Israel via sea transport by others.

Challenges and ISI Response:

This Project had an extremely aggressive period of performance of 30 days which required efficient coordination between all key stakeholders. Key stakeholders for the project included: USACE, Israel Ministry of Defense (MOD), MOD’s Freight Forwarder & ISI’s Freight Forwarder, Himoinsa – Spain (Generator Manufacturer), European Union (EU) Customs (multiple countries), and the Port of Hamburg.

During execution of this contract, there were also several farmer and truck strikes throughout the EU. These strikes blocked roads, which required coordination with multiple entities from ISI’s home office in Atlanta, GA to maintain the period of performance.

The Result:

This project was a success with ISI meeting the 30-day period of performance. All goods arrived in excellent condition with no cargo shifting during transit.

The Details:

ISI’s team provided 179 generators with 0 hours (new), packed in 40’ containers while appropriately blocking & bracing cargo, published all commercial export/import documentation, and successfully met the period of performance for an important USACE mission. All generators shipped from Spain while meeting all requirements established under the Balance of Payments Program.
