Heavy Lift Across the World

The beer tanks are on us, says Indiana-Burns

The port of Indiana-Burns recently took delivery of 12 brewery tanks destined for a Michigan beer producer, on board Fednav’s bulk carrier Federal Mackinac.

Each cylindrical tank can hold 800 barrels of beer - or 198,400 pints - weighs 11.5 tonnes, and is 40 ft (12.2 m) long and 14 ft (4.3 m) in diameter.

The tanks were discharged from the vessel by Federal Marine Terminal's shore crane into a storage area. They will then be loaded onto heavy haulage trucks for final delivery.

Indiana-Burns says it has become a regular hub for heavy lift and project cargo due to its ocean access and proximity to the US heartland, although it mainly handles bulks such as coal, limestone, steel and agricultural products. In the last three years, the port has handled dozens of brewery tanks in five separate shipments.
