Energy Transportation was hired to load & move a 1.4 million pound shovel, 15 miles across the mine. In order to load the shovel onto our platform trailer, we built a trench for our hauling configuration to drive through. We then walked the shovel onto our trailer. Once loaded, our gross vehicle weight was 2.2 million pounds. In some cases throughout the haul, steep grades required our team to utilize multiple push & pull trucks to safely complete the project. Project planning, engineering, & route surveys were performed by our team months in advance to insure the project was completed in the most safe and economical fashion. From point A to point B, the project took approximately 12 hours to reach completion.
