Bayside Engineering recently escorted a heavy haul move from Searsport, ME to Searsmont, ME. The object being transported was a wood-fired boiler for a new biomass plant at Robbins Lumber. Weighing 346,000lbs, the 84 feet long by 21 feet tall boiler took two days to arrive at its final destination.
As part of the move, linemen in bucket trucks from Central Main Power held up utility lines on Route 141 in Swanville to allow the massive boiler to pass beneath. At the plant, a 900,000-pound crane was positioned to life the boiler when it arrived.
