St. Louis, Missouri-based Sterett Crane and Rigging recently moved nine 200-ton to 250-ton heat recovery steam generator modules from Baxter Springs, Kansas to Riverton, Kansas along a challenging route, with limited area to negotiate several 90-degree turns. To accomplish this task, Sterett employed several pieces of equipment, including an 18-line Scheuerle K-25 towed hydraulic platform trailer, a Scheuerle gooseneck, and a six-line Scheuerle K-25 power booster/self-propelled trailer. This combination resulted in minimal traffic disruptions along the route during the two-week period the modules were transported. Although the trailer/truck combination stretched nearly 200-ft in length, the capabilities of the Scheuerle trailers and self-propelled/power booster module enabled Sterett to meet the Kansas Department of Transportation requirements, as well as the customer’s timeline.
Sterett utilized its new Enerpac 1200-ton four-post self-propelled gantry system to load out the HRSGs at the rail siding. The HRSG units were set with a Demag CC2800 with wagon after help from a Kobelco SL4500 to tail them into a vertical position. “We’re committed to customer satisfaction, and we strive to deliver an efficient and professional service experience to our customers,” says Sterett president Jonathan Spong. The heavy equipment supplier has dedicated the past 60 years to providing quality service, personnel and equipment to the Midwest Region.
