Hauling oversized cargo is nothing new for Barnhart, so a project to receive and transport a degassing and recovery column from the Port of Houston to a plant site in La Porte, Texas was right in our wheelhouse.

The recovery column was nearly 200 feet long and weighed 529,104 pounds. It was offloaded at the port to two 8-axle-line EasTrac transporters with bolster configurations.

While the permitted route to the plant was just 35 miles, it included safely navigating the column through the congested city of Houston.

Once the recovery column was delivered, the degassing column was transported two days later by a 12-line EasTrac transporter to the site. Both columns were delivered safely and on time.
