Tank Installation – 50 Ton Rear Mount Hiab

50 Ton Rear Mount Hiab Project

Eagle West Cranes (a div. of TNT Crane & Rigging Inc.) partnered with M&R Environmental to install a 42,000 lb oversized tank.

M&R Environmental is located in Burnaby BC and recently manufactured a 42,000 lb tank for a customer. The final dimensions of the tank were 11`W x 12`H x 43`L . The tank’s size required Eagle West Team to transport it using a specific permitted over sized route. The route used was designed to prevent any potential height issues with overpasses along the Trans-Canada Highway 1 and keeps public safety as the number one priority.

Once the team had safely transported the tank onsite, two 50 ton rear mount hiabs were used to unload and place the tank onto specialty industrial moving skates. After the tank was positioned onto the skates, the Eagle West Cranes Crew moved the tank into position.

With over 25 years of specialty equipment moving experience, Eagle West Cranes is proficient at supporting companies who require help in transporting, lifting and placing their expensive and specialized equipment.
