Scrubber Roll-off and Install

Problem: A 309,000-pound scrubber had to be moved and installed.

Solution: Climbing jacks were used to lift it from a barge onto a PSTe Goldhofer trailer for transport.

Barnhart's Chicago crew rolled off a 309,000-pound, 40-foot scrubber at a refinery in Joliet, Illinois. The vessel arrived resting on cribbing on the deck of a barge.

The team used 200-ton climbing jacks to lift it high enough for a double 12-line PSTe Goldhofer trailer to be installed under the saddles. The scrubber was then self-loaded and successfully rolled off of the barge and into a temporary staging area. Later, Barnhart supplied a Demag CC2600 for erection.
