200 tonnes of steel nosed their way through Schwedt yesterday. A distillation column being 45m long, 3.6m in diameter and 82 tonnes was delivered to the PCK refinery.
Just 600 m from the destination headed for. But now comes the trickiest location to be overcome by the driver Udo Baumgarten on the 3km long journey.
Saturday night a 575 tonne heavy truck train rolls through the northern Ruhr area carrying parts of an air separation unit.
Never before F.A. Neuman, a specialist in tank construction, built anything larger than the CO2 stripping column that was transported in two parts in the night from Wednesday to Thursday on a predetermined route from the centre of the town to Geleen in the Netherlands.
Roadblocks everywhere, police everywhere with blue lights switched on. Last night in Eschweiler at 10: the roaring engine of a 46m long giant transporter (5.20m wide, 4.70 m high).
The transport could not but accept a one hour stop under the motorway bridge at Aachen-Verlautenheide . It went millimeter by millimeter.
