Center of Gravity Challenge

Perkins handled the task of moving two package boilers for our freight forwarder client from Houston, TX to a major refinery in Blaine, WA located minutes from both the Pacific Ocean and the WA/BC border.  At 46' - 0'' long, 20' - 0'' wide, 15' - 0'' high and weighing 256,400 lbs with an asymmetrical center of gravity, this pair of big boilers were challenging, but no match for the Perkins team of professionals.
