This project required the movement of one furnace module from Webb Dock, Melbourne to Coolaroo Melbourne, a distance of only 30km. The method chosen was to use the bookend method with purpose built bookends, this allowed the furnace to travel as close to the ground as possible, maximising the furnaces dimensions and volume. After 6 months of preperations the furnace was moved over two nights to its final location.web0287


Several route surveys and designs were completed before a suitable solution was found. The Bookends were designed specifically for the transport using 3D Modelling and FEA Stress Analysis with in house systems offered by Rex J Andrews Pty Ltd

Shown here is the furnace enroute to Coolaroo, we used two 6x8 platform trailers to carry the 92T furnace
