The Deep South team was hard at work at the Geismar Chemical Plant in Louisiana. Read on to see how our talented crews are using cranes, transporters, and jacking solutions to help construct the largest alpha olefins production facility in the world.
Supplying all cranes in two units during a petrochemical turnaround in the Southeast, Deep South supported the change out of old components and reinstallation of new components with 19 cranes working throughout the project.
Deep South crews were challenged to haul, lift, and set 84 modules, including three towers (one measuring 100’ long, 350,000 lbs.) as well as various pieces of process equipment, such as piping, tanks, PDC buildings, and transformers—all within a tight schedule. Many of the modules had offset centers of gravity further complicating the lift and set.
