Vessel Haul

Barnhart undertook a hauling project that was a journey of over 3,000 miles. It started at the port of Houston, where the team loaded the Gas Scrubber vessel onto a GS-800 trailer. Barnhart had to add two girder inserts to accommodate the length of the vessel.

The vessel's destination was a refinery in Northern Canada. At several points along the trip, Barnhart reconfigured the trailer to accommodate state laws.

Barnhart had to get permitting for the oversize load with seven state agencies. They also had to coordinate with local municipalities and utility companies to secure all permits and clearances for the haul.

The convoy had a couple of challenges that included dealing with customs crossing into Canada and encountering extremely cold and snowy weather along the way. Nonetheless, the vessel was delivered safely and successfully.
