Sarens’ Monster move
Date 05 December 2018
Referred to as the “Monster move”, Sarens transported a 350T heater box and stack from Ledwood Engineering to the Port of Pembroke.
Sarens was roped in by Ledwood Engineering to move a 350T heater box and stack measuring 21m height. The move is considered as the largest heavy load ever transported through the town.
The heater manufactured by Ledwood Engineering was designed to be shipped to Sweden for an oil refinery. The heater measured 23m high, 16m long and 5m wide. The move to the port took three hours.
Sarens deployed its efficient crew and Kamag axle lines to execute the project. Clearances were sought from the police and the electricity department to clear the street of the cables which could obstruct the movement.
“It is believed to be the heaviest load to be transported in the Dyfed Powys Police area. We had to complete the challenging task in a tight schedule, safely moving the load to the port,” says Project Manager Alister Smith.
The project also won the Job of the Year award at the prestigious Heavies Award last month. According to the jury the project was termed as “Very heavy, very high transportation through a town centre on SPMT’s: not for the faint-hearted.”
