500,000-pound Deisobutanizer Turnkey Project

Deep South Crane performed turnkey transport and lift services for a Southeast oil refinery, transporting a 500,000-pound deisobutanizer from its fabricator in Vicksburg, Mississippi to Krotz Springs, Louisiana using a combination of over-the-road hauling, barging, and heavy lifting. 

The 1,500-ton VersaCrane TC-24000, as well as the 440-ton Demag CC-2400 serving as the tail crane, lifted it into final position. Lifting bails with all steel-plate links allowed the crane operator to unhook the rigging without any personnel having to access the top of the tower. The lift was successfully completed in under 2 hours.
