The efficient and safe execution of heavy transportation involves specialized load handling equipment and various modes of transport. This course is designed for personnel involved in specialized transport from contract transport organizations and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to engineering companies and project owners in the oil and gas, power generation, and other plant-environment industries.
The engineering principles of hydraulic platform trailers (HPTs), like self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs), are delved into along with a variety of other load handling equipment. Heavy lift, jacking and skidding, and load-out (roll-on/roll-off) project case studies are utilized for students to gain a broad understanding of the art and science of specialized transport and heavy lift operations.
The Art of Heavy Transport is available.
