Overcoming Limited Space with Specialty Tools

In the Midwest, Deep South transported and set a tower weighing 227,000 pounds and measuring 134’ long by 8’-2" in diameter. Taking into consideration very low pipe racks along the route, Deep South used Goldhofer E-series SPMTs and flat bolsters to move under the pipe racks with 1.5” clearance. Limited space within the refinery required transporters to travel at a 90-degree angle from the original direction of travel. To set the vessel, Deep South used a 660-ton Demag CC2800-1, which was built over pipe racks in a confined area using our 500-ton gantry system.
