In January 2016, the team commenced heavy haul transports, transporting a 930-ton boiler approximately 2.5 miles from the project's construction dock to the project site and placing it on its permanent foundation.
Since then, the project has completed more than 270 heavy haul transports from the construction dock to the project site, with nearly 500 total expected throughout the life of the project.
Mega lifts began in August 2016, as the team lifted a 595-ton polymerization reactor into place. 36 mega lifts are planned. The first 78 modules for the ethane cracker were delivered to site in December 2016.
