Juggernaut...one more of the heavy hauling to Fort McMurray.
Here's a short clip of the rig as it prepares to negotiate a very tight
right hand turn in Two Hills. All of the wheels on the Scheurle trailer
units are steerable. This coker weighed in at 456,000 kg (trailers and
trucks extra) Each of the trailer units has 160 wheels. (320 wheels on 20
axles in total)
These coker ovens weigh more than 500 tons, 10 meters in diameter, 80
meters long, are are on their way from Edmonton to the oilsands plants at
Fort McMurray. They have as many as 7 tractors pulling and pushing, the
Scheurle trailer units have 160 wheels each. Travel speed is from 10-30
kmh. Manufactured by Cessco Inc. and also Dacro Industries Ltd. The biggest
piece hauled so far was 1,700,000 pounds or about 850 tonnes. It was the
heaviest road load ever transported in North America. So far, they've
manufactured and moved at least 8 units like this. The move takes about a
week for the 550km journey from Edmonton to Fort McMurray. More are being
built as more of the oilsands are being exploited. Most of the big loads
are moved in winter when the roads are frozen solid. The bridge over the
North Saskatchewan River at Duvernay had to be reinforced. Two companies
handle the hauling, Mammoet Transportation Inc. and Premay Equipment Ltd.
After the vessels are assembled, they are put into a gigantic heat-treating
oven where they are baked to take out stresses.
