Omega Morgan transports 4 adsorber vessels in northwestern USA
The Oregon-based company Omega Morgan handled the transportation of four adsorber vessels from the Port of Vancouver, in Washington, to North Plains, in Oregon.
The four adsorbers each weighed about 68,000 pounds (30844,281 kilograms) and measured 16 inches (40,64 centimetres) in width, 16 inches (40,64 centimetres) in height, and 24 inches (60.96 centimetres) in length.
They were transported via truck from the Port of Vancouver, in the state of Washington, to the Omega Morgan yard in North Plains, Oregon, about 200 miles (or 321,869 kilometres) before being transported on the final leg of the trip to a microprocessor development and manufacturing facility in Oregon.
The specialised Omega Morgan crews planned a path with street widths that could accommodate the load, taking into account traffic congestion and equipment requirements. They worked with the state and county to obtain proper permits as well.
The adsorber vessels could not be loaded on double drop trailers, so the crews used specialised “tank” trailers. This took two overnight trips, which was less time than planned. A 4-axle tractor was also used. The transport went smoothly, and Omega Morgan’s crane services handled offloading.
