is there irony in the fact our "working harbour" is being used to assemble equipment for the coal industry during a climate emergency here?  hopefully helps comes down to christen the piece with the champagne bottle break before it leaves.

 

any chance point hope will win any bids to build new japanese whaling ships?

So are they assembling this thing prior to shipping it out just to make sure that it works?  Wouldn't it be easier to transport it in pieces, and then assemble it onsite wherever it's supposed to be?


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

It takes 60,000 man hours to assemble the thing, so it's much more practical to deliver it in working order.

Mega Machine...

 

This new addition took three cranes to lift into place and has created a monster of a machine.  And to think they'll have to dismantle it again before shipping to North Vancouver; hmm, unless they bring in the Dynamic Beast.

These scoops would make a cool art installation in one of the many dead zones adjacent to the Johnson Street Bridge.

No. It's a coal stacker that will be shipped to North Van when done.

 

I hope Gary live streams the shipping process through the bridge. Seems like it'll be a tight fit.

It's back...

 

The Dynamic Beast crane barge has once again arrived in the upper harbour - this time to transport the finished coal stacker / reclaimer and tripper to North Vancouver.

 

The crane will lift the smaller "coal tripper" onto the barge while the main stacker/reclaimer is so large and heavy (~ 1,000 tons) that it will be rolled onto the barge.

 

https://www.cheknews...ilities-687568/

 

The work is set to begin tomorrow, Sunday.

They've only loaded the tripper on the barge - with the crane.

 

The much bigger coal stacker is too heavy to lift.  As can be seen in the many photos, it sits on rails.  It will supposedly be rolled onto the barge.  Trouble is the rails go north/south and don't (yet) extend to the edge of the pier.  There's not much room in the water at the north end of the pier.  Maybe they'll rotate the barge 90 degrees.  I'm not sure how they're going to pull this off.

Guess they'll have to leave it there and turn the shipyard into a coal loading port.

Okay, I think I have the answer.  They're not going to move the coal stacker using its rail wheels but rather jack it up and use hydraulic dollies and prime movers to roll it onto the barge.  It will be impressive if they do this as one piece.  This moving technique was used by Ramsay when they transported their coal stacker several years ago across the YYJ runway to an awaiting barge.  They used Apex and Pro-Tech to do the move.
