In the Southeast, Deep South performed a complex turnkey project that required equipment modification and careful planning.
To begin, Deep South received a reactor from the ship of origin and transported it via barge to a petrochemical facility up river. Using Goldhofer SPMTs, Deep South off-loaded the vessel from the barge and negotiated very tight turns and low pipe racks with minimum clearance to get it to the final off-loading location. Five-hundred-ton gantries were used to off-load to temporary supports.
Deep South modified the 1,500-ton VersaCrane TC-24000 specifically for this project to accommodate a very tight tail swing requirement. The vessel weighed 420,000 pounds, measured 100’ long and was lifted using 200’ of boom at a 95’ radius. Scheuerle SPMTs were used with the tailing frame to tail the load due to space constraints.
Deep South was contracted to barge and transport cold boxes, pressure vessels, and bullet tanks weighing in at nearly 400 tons.
Deep South was contracted to deliver a 750,000-pound reactor to a refinery in northern Illinois. The navigable waterway, a highly-trafficked 125-foot wide canal, required a side roll-off.
Using a Terex Demag CC-2800, Deep South moved this offshore ship’s crane pieces into place.
