Heavy Lift Components for Ryazan Refinery

DAKOTRANS AG, Moscow, has executed the transport and erection of heavy lift components for the Ryazan Refinery. The biggest pieces were 2 reactors with a length of 40m and a diameter of 3,50m, each weighing approx. 280 tons. These were shifted at a nearby railway siding from a heavy lift rail wagon onto hydraulic trailers, transported to the construction site and then lifted into a vertical position with the use of a 750 tons crawler crane, which was imported on a temporary basis by DAKOTRANS AG from Finland especially for this operation.

In total 10 heavy pieces were transported and erected and the job was executed to the entire satisfaction of the refinery as ultimate client. The 750 tons crane was redelivered to Finland.
