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.
In support of a major bridge construction project in the Midwest, Deep South crews helped transport and install four bridge spans from an off-site staging area to the bridge foundation.
The construction of a combined-cycle power station in Louisiana required a specialty contractor to move, lift and set a STG generator (692,250 lbs.) and HIP turbine (392,420 lbs.).
In South Carolina, Deep South was contracted to transport and secure seven modules from the fabricator shop to a barge site via Scheuerle SPMTs.
