Power Cable Move

Barnhart provided inland transportation for four 140-ton power cable reels from the Port of Chalmette, LA by barge to an intermediate storage facility in Orange Beach, AL. The barge was placed alongside a vessel at the port where the team received the 30' long, 15' high, and 14'9" wide reels under the vessel's hook. They discharged the reels directly from the vessel to the barge and transported them to Orange Beach by way of the Port of Mobile, AL.

The job, proposed initially as a roll-off operation, became a lift-off job at a secondary location because the roll-off site was unavailable. The team used a 550-ton hydraulic truck crane to unload the reels at the final destination where they placed them on stands and beams.

They transported the reels to the storage facility via 10-line Goldhofer PSTe and self-unloaded them to stands and beams. Inland transport was completed under budget and ahead of schedule.
