Dismantling, transport and reassembly of a large hydraulic operated chip bin
Last week we had the opportunity to participate on a project with Valley Industrial Services Ltd, consisting of the dismantling, transport and reassembly of a large hydraulic operated chip bin.
Valley Industrial Services Ltd. team worked with Can Ridge’s Deck & Crane Division to dismantle the chip bin by utilizing our extremely capable 40-Ton Hydraulic Crane to lower the dismantled pieces onto our double-drop expandable trailer for transportation to Agassiz for future reassembly.
Can Ridge’s Deck & Crane Division used their expertise and planning to transport the 15’ x 16’ chip bin in one piece as an oversized load. This decision reduced the project timeline by several days by cutting the dismantling time in half. This type of planning saves both time and money for the customer.
Oversized load transportation requires extensive planning and permitting to ensure the item arrives in a safe and timely manner. The transport of the chip bin had to be accompanied by two pilot cars for safety, and had to be moved during the nighttime as to not impede the flow of traffic.
The chip bin arrived safely at its destination where it was then offloaded and placed by our 40-Ton Hydraulic Crane for future reassembly.
Thanks to Valley Industrial Services Ltd. for being fantastic collaborators on this unique project!
