OXY - THUMS Vessel Installation
Bragg Crane & Rigging was awarded a project by OXY - THUMS in Long Beach, Ca to install two new crude oil separation vessels located in the Port of Long Beach. The project difficulties arose with the definite lack of space due to active rail lines in the port, as well as live pipelines that only allowed for mere inches of clearance. Despite the space constraints Bragg Crane & Rigging was able to use our Link-Belt HC278, two legs of our Lift-Systems 850 ton gantry, and two legs of our Lift-Systems 400 ton gantry to complete the job. The gantry and crane were used to swing and walk the vessel into place before it was completely held by both gantry systems and set into place. This process was completed twice over a three week period for the two vessels that were contracted to be set.
