Perkins was contracted by a California utility to move four (4) steam generator sections with dimensions of 46’ 4” length, 15’ 6” width, 14’ 5” height, and a weight of 760,335 lbs from CA to UT. To accomplish the task, Perkins developed the “Road Train” transporter, a Trail King 800 suspension system with 48 dual lane loading hydraulic/gas bogies. Conceived and initially designed by Perkins project managers and engineers, “Road Train” was professionally built by a major US trailer manufacturer for the project.
Perkins was selected by a major industrial boiler manufacturer to move a series of five D-style boilers for them into northern Alberta to be used to support living conditions in that region's harsh winter climate. While not particularly heavy at only 178,000 lbs each, the boiler's physical characteristics provided their own challenges.
After competitive bidding Perkins STC was awarded a job from a major international freight forwarder to move two huge loads from a Houston, TX ocean terminal into northern Alberta. The project consisted of moving two separator vessels with net weights of 286,600 lbs and 275,625 lbs, respectively, imported from Italy for delivery to Canadian Natural Resources, Ltd (CNRL) Horizon Oil Sands Project located near Fort McMurray, AB.
