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.
Deep South Crane and Rigging was recently contracted by a southeast petrochemical plant as part of a major pre-turnaround project. In order to de-bottleneck ethylene production, Deep South erected a caustic tower and a prefrac tower.
