The unit weighs almost 500 t, is approximately 15 ft in diameter and 180 ft in length, and was transported from the Air Products Port Manatee facility across the highway and directly onto the port’s Berth 12 in late October 2016. It was then loaded onto a vessel by Logistec USA Stevedores for shipment.
Betsy Benac, Chairwoman of the Manatee County Port Authority, said: “Expert shipment of special project cargos of such dimensions proves the outstanding ability of Port Manatee and its partners to handle such large and heavy pieces.
“Air Products has a dynamic, positive impact on Manatee County, and we are proud of our strong collaboration.”
