14 Mar Customized Scheuerle HighwayGiant Transporter Delivers 3 – 625,000# Towers
Capital City Group completed a project with a Scheuerle HighwayGiant dual lane transporter where we transported 3 towers for MarkWest in Hopedale, Ohio. The towers weighed up to 625,000 pounds, were up to 192 feet long, 14 feet wide, and over 14 feet tall. Capital City had to complete the 35 mile project while also having to deal with various transportation restrictions over a 2 day period for each tower.
The move was completed on a customized Scheuerle HighwayGiant consisting of 16 lines and 3 prime movers. The gross weight was 965,000 pounds, an a overall length of 350 feet, and 17’4″ tall. Due to weight limitations the towers were required to travel on the weekend with 6 bucket trucks, 12 police, and ODOT/WV officials.
The project took well over a year of planning and the transporter had special inserts manufactured to reduce the overall height down to 17’4″ to contend with ODOT height requirements.
