April 18 - Wolvertem, Belgium headquartered heavy lift specialist Sarens Group has transported two 1,400 tonne reactors from the port of Bourgas, Bulgaria to an inland oil refinery.
The 57 m long by 9 m wide vessels were shifted on 60-axles lines of SPMTs through Bourgas city centre. Streetlights and high-tension power cables had to be removed for the over-dimensional cargoes to pass. The project was deliberately timed in the quieter low season to minimise tourist disruption.
After a 36 hour transit the consignment arrived at the jobsite for installation. Each 1,400 tonne tower was lifted into position with a Sartower installation unit equipped with a skidding system and two tailing cranes.
