Cianbro Modules Roll Down Streets of Port Arthur

Cianbro's Maine-made refinery expansion modules have created quite a spectacle as they've rolled down the main thoroughfare in the coastal Texan town of Port Arthur.  The massive modules were unloaded from the barge, Columbia Boston, in about half the time that had been set aside.  As of Thursday, April 23rd, one module was already fastened down on the pad at the Motiva refinery. 

Cianbro's modules are the first of roughly 350 refinery modules that will come into Port Arthur from four different yards in the United States and Mexico over the next year and a half.  To accommodate the huge loads as they travel from the riverside bulkhead to the refinery, city officials have made special arrangements, such as traffic lights that can swivel out of the way as the modules pass by.

Back in Brewer, Maine, Cianbro crews are nearing completion on the next four modules scheduled to be transported to Texas.  Those modules are expected to depart Maine via ocean going barge during the first part of June.  Meanwhile, the tug, Emma Foss, and her barge are already headed back to Maine after delivering the first modules to Texas.  The return trip should take about three weeks, weather permitting.
