37 Vessel Heavy Haul

As part of an expansion project in the Southwest, Deep South received, barged, and transported 37 vessels to complete this project. Pictured here is the largest of those vessels, an 800-ton quench tower. Using Deep South’s 1,000-ton rocking bolsters, in-house designed transport saddles, and a 120’ bridge ramp, Deep South was able to negotiate the barge roll off and 4 miles of roadways through town to reach the job site. This included crossing three jumper bridges, the longest measuring 120’ in length.
