Project: HEVI Vessel Move

HEVI Vessel Moving

Equipment Used:

Western moved two 400,000 lbs vessels measuring 155′-6″ long and 10′-0″ diameter, with a 400 Ton capacity Hydraulic Gantry. The vessels were lifted off railcars and placed onto Goldhofer PST/SL-E (45) hydraulic trailers. The hydraulic trailers relocate the vessels from the rail siding into Hooper Welding’s facility in Hamilton, Ontario. Once in the facility, Western used a fleet of hydraulic cylinders to self-unload the vessels from the hydraulic trailers. Photos by: H.B. Photo
