Oxy Transformers Hoist and Heavy Haul
Marks Crane & Rigging provided a few cranes and transportation solutions for SPX. We hoisted three transformers that varied in weight from 118,750 lbs to 123,240 lbs. In order to accomplish this we used our 40 ton boom truck to undress the transformers. Once all accessories where off and boxed up we brought in our Terex AC250-1, a 300 ton all-terrain crane, to load the three transformers to our heavy haul trucks. We then moved our Terex AC250-1 and all three transformers to Hobbs, NM to be offloaded at the OXY South Hobbs Plant. Once on site we offloaded the three transformers to their designated pad locations. Then we used our 40 ton to dress them all back out with their accessories. From start to finish it was a total of 8 days of work.
