Omega Morgan hauls heavy load for a tech company
Omega Morgan recently supported a compatriot technology company in its quest to expand its microprocessor development and manufacturing facility in Oregon. The transportation specialist was tasked with delivering absorbers from the Port of Vancouver, Washington.
Omega Morgan noted that the absorbers were initially transported from the port to the company’s yard in North Plains, Oregon before sending them on to their final destination at the manufacturing facility on their scheduled delivery date.
Getting these tanks to the yard required some careful planning, Omega Morgan noted. There were four adsorbers to transport, each weighing approximately 68,000 pounds (30.8 tons), with dimensions of 16’ in width, 16’ in height and 24’ in length (4.8 m x 4.8 m x 7.3 m).
The specialized transport service crews needed to plan for street widths that could accommodate the load, traffic congestion along the haul route, and aligning the manpower and equipment requirements for the heavy haul. Omega Morgan worked alongside the state and county to acquire the proper permits for a load of this size.
The other challenge included the way the adsorber vessels would need to be transported. Since they could not be loaded on double drop trailers, specialized “tank” trailers were used to transport the load safely and properly. This meant making two overnight trips, using two specialized tank trailers to move the vessels to the yard in North Plains.
Using 4-axle tractor and two specialized tank trailers, our specialized transportation solutions team successfully delivered the 4four adsorber vessels from the Port of Vancouver to the yard over the course of two evenings, in less time than planned.
