Mammoet has completed the weighing and loading of 60 modules for Cianbro’s furnace cargo venture at their module plant in Brewer, Maine. The modules are designed for a major petrochemical plant in the US.
For the project of weighing 60 modules one-by-one, wireless load cells proved effectivity and reduced congestion onsite while bettering safety.
Without wires, there were fewer barriers and potential hazards on the worksite, and organizing the system saved time because there have been no wires to run.
Before the start of the venture, Mammoet worked with the wireless weighing technology fabricator to slightly modify and customize their design to meet the necessities for ensuring safe and flawless execution.
The weight of the modules ranged between 30 t and 175 t each. Over the entirety of the task, 72 axle-lines of SPMT had been used to transport the weighed modules onto barges. Modules were split into 18 barge shipments, which had been loaded over an interval of ten months.
Due to a tidal difference of as much as 16 ft between high and low tide, solely one module was able to be shipped a day before the tide would again be too high to execute barge loading safely.
Regardless of the tide and frequently uncooperative weather, Mammoet completed the task a week ahead of schedule.
