Mammoet in 11,000 km move
By Laura Hatton12 November 2013
Heavy lift and transport provider Mammoet, has moved six coke drums on self propelled modular transporters (SPMT) for the Chevron El Segundo Refinery.
At the start of the project the drums were moved 7,330 miles from Spain to the Port of Los Angeles, USA. Each coke drum weighed 250 tonnes each and measured 30 metres long and 8.5 m wide.
After arriving in Los Angeles, the drums were transported to the Redondo King Harbor Marina by barge two at a time. On arrival at King Harbour, the drums were loaded onto 12 axle lines of Scheuerle SPMT, before being transported to Herondo Street, on the West Pacific Coast Highway near the El Segundo Refinery.
The new coke drums will be used to replace existing drums at the refinery.
