COEYMANS, N.Y. (AP) - A 130-foot-(40-meter)-tall steam generator built along the Hudson River outside Albany is on a barge heading south for a New Jersey power plant.

The Times Union reports (https://bit.ly/2vexqjJ ) the $195 million heat-recovery steam generator left the Port of Coeymans (KWEE’-mihnz) Monday morning. The 8-million-pound (3.6 million kilograms) structure is on a 400-foot (122-meter)-long barge accompanied by two tug boats for the 170-mile (273-kilometer) voyage to Seawaren, on the Arthur Kill separating New Jersey and Staten Island.

The generator is a component of a new, $600 million power plant being built by PSEG. The equipment was assembled at the port in Coeymans, just south of Albany.

The generator is the latest large structure built at the 400-acre (162-hectare), privately owned port, which is marking its 10th anniversary this month.
