Turnkey in Tight Quarters: Deep South's Split Trailers Reduce Height with Inches to Spare

For a petrochemical refinery in the Southeast, Deep South moved two 491,000-pound coke drums measuring 99’ long and 24’2” diameter from Spain to the client’s site in Louisiana. Along the way, Deep South solved many complex challenges, including coordinating international shipping, trans-loading the drums to a deck barge at the port, barging them to the client’s site, constructing a custom earthen ramp, and executing the roll-off operation. Once inside the plant, the job became even more complicated as we had to navigate a critical main-line rail crossing in 9 hours while putting no weight on the tracks – and also while bridging a tunnel and encountering numerous limiting height and width requirements, some with only 2” of clearance. Equipment used included 12-axle lines of double-wide Scheuerle SPMT, 10-axle lines of Scheuerle Split SPMT, barge ramps, 80’ jumper bridges, jack and slide equipment, and jacking cans.

Deep South Transport Job - 800-ton Quench Tower Section

As part of a major expansion project in Texas, Deep South received, barged, and transported this 800-ton Quench Tower Section. Utilizing our 1000-ton rocking bolsters, in-house designed transport saddles, and 120’ Bridge Ramps, Deep South was able to negotiate the barge rolloff and 4 miles of roadways through a town to reach the job site. This included crossing 3 jumper bridges, the longest measuring 120’ in length. The vessel shown in this video was the largest of the 37 vessels that Deep South received, barged, and transported to complete this project.

Overcoming Obstacles: Deep South's Superior Jack and Slide Capabilities

With nearly 50 years of experience in the heavy lift and heavy haul industry, Deep South can overcome even the most challenging obstacles. At a refinery in the Midwest, extreme spatial constraints and underground utilities offered little room for error. Deep South met this challenge by executing an 800' jack and slide operation, which allowed the vessels to overcome extremely low ground bearing pressures, less than 2".

Deep South's 500,000-pound Deisobutanizer Turnkey Project

Deep South Crane & Rigging performed turnkey transport and lift services for a Southeast oil refinery, transporting a 500,000-pound deisobutanizer from its fabricator in Vicksburg, Mississippi to Krotz Springs, Louisiana using a combination of over-the-road hauling, barging, and heavy lifting. The 1,500-ton VersaCrane TC-24000 as well as the 440-ton Demag CC-2400 lifted it into final position. Lifting bails with all steel-plate links allowed the crane operator to unhook the rigging without any personnel having to access the top of the tower.

Deep South's 124-line SPMT Chemical Reactor Transport

In the Southwest, Deep South received three vessels from a heavy lift ship at the Port of Houston, barged the vessels, and transported them to final staging using a total of 124-axle lines Scheuerle SPMT. The heaviest vessel weighed 1,800,000 pounds and the total gross weight at transport for that vessel was 2,300,000 pounds.No roll-off site was available, so Deep South identified a potential roll-off location, executed a lease agreement, cleared the land of trees, brought in dirt and compacted the area, and added a temporary dock using matting and steel ramps. The barging was performed in two conveyances using 3 barges and 3 tugs.
