Barnhart in mass module move

March 1 - Barnhart Crane & Rigging has transported 48 convection modules over 40 miles (64 km) by road from Big Cabin and Locust Fork in Oklahoma to Tulsa Port of Catoosa.

Barnhart utilised its EasTrac/WesTrac dual-lane transporter, which was developed in cooperation with Goldhofer, to move the 48 modules from the two fabrication facilities to the US port in six phases.

On arrival in Catoosa, Barnhart used standard Goldhofer self-propelled transporters to roll the modules, which ranged in weight from 106,080 lb (48.1 tonnes) to 383,000 lb (173.7 tonnes), onto a waiting barge.

The modules were then shipped using Mammoet-operated barges to Freeport, Texas.
