FOX presses ahead with machinery move

FOX Brasil has handled the transport of heavy machinery from an automotive manufacturing plant, including four heavy presses and furnace equipment.

In total, FOX Brasil transported two production lines and was responsible for conducting feasibility studies and route surveys ahead of the road transport to the port of Santos.

At the production site, FOX Brasil’s technical team handled the disassembly of the production lines, as well as the heavy lift operations. All pieces were cleaned and prepared to comply with the regulations at the final destination in North America.

Tailor-made supports were designed to secure the heaviest pieces of equipment, which weighed 96 tons (87 tonnes) and 121 tons (109.8 tonnes), onto 24-axle line modular trailers.

The components remained in the support structures for loading operations at the port of Santos, where FOX Brasil hired a 280-ton (254-tonne) capacity floating crane to place the components on board a container vessel.

FOX Brasil’s partner overseas handled the next phase of the project - delivery to the final production site. Specialists from FOX Brasil will soon travel to the plant to supervise the installation of the components at the new location.
