400,400 Pound Boiler Lifts

Three boilers were delivered horizontally to Deep South’s 500-ton hydraulic gantry system that was setup outside of the plant. The boilers were lifted and trans-loaded onto 12-line double-wide Scheuerle SPMTs and transported into the Southwest petrochemical refinery through a very congested unit. 

Deep South then set them onto their foundations using two 500-ton Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1s and a 265-ton Liebherr LTM 1220-5.1. Each boiler weighed 400,400 pounds and was 52’ long, 13’ wide, and 26’ high.
