In the Southwest, Deep South received three vessels from a heavy lift ship at the Port of Houston, barged the vessels, and transported them to final staging using a total of 124-axle lines Scheuerle SPMT. The heaviest vessel weighed 1,800,000 pounds and the total gross weight at transport for that vessel was 2,300,000 pounds.
No roll-off site was available, so Deep South identified a potential roll-off location, executed a lease agreement, cleared the land of trees, brought in dirt and compacted the area, and added a temporary dock using matting and steel ramps.
The barging was performed in two conveyances using three barges and three tugs.
