NEW YORK (AP) — A 130-foot-(40-meter)-tall steam generator has been making its way down the Hudson River toward its new home at a New Jersey power plant.

The $195 million heat-recovery steam generator left the Port of Coeymans (KWEE'-mihnz) near Albany, New York, on Monday morning.

On Tuesday, the 8-million-pound (3.6 million kilograms) structure passed beneath the George Washington Bridge on a 400-foot (122-meter)-long barge.

The destination of its 170-mile (273-kilometer) voyage was Seawaren, on the Arthur Kill separating New Jersey and Staten Island.

The generator is a component of a $600 million power plant being built by PSEG.

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.
