Regenerator Head Section Delivered Safely to Client
Location: Port of Catoosa, Oklahoma
Earlier this year, Turner Industries’ specialized transportation group barged and unloaded an FCC regenerator head section from the Port of Catoosa, Oklahoma, to our modular fabrication yard in Port Allen, Louisiana. After a few months of storage, it was time to deliver the regenerator head section to the client, located north of Port Allen, Louisiana. The regenerator head section was loaded on our Goldhofer PST / SL E-8 + 8.6-meter drop deck section and our PST / SL E-8 Modular Transporter. The routing required passing through the Turner Industries pipe fabrication facility as well as our painting facility in order to bypass the I-10 /Mississippi River Bridge ramp. Due to the size of the regenerator head section, the project required approximately one year to plan and obtain all local, state, and federal permits and approvals. Because of the extreme height of the haul, Turner contracted Entergy to permanently raise several high-voltage powerlines on the north side of Port Allen approximately eight feet by installing new utility poles. The delivery was completed incident-free and ahead of schedule.
