After several months of work on the Port of Miami Tunnel Project conveyor controls, Phase 1 has shipped. Phase 1 consists of two of the three fully functional enclosed housings, each 22' long and weighing about 4 1/2 tons, that contain all of the control system elements needed to manage the conveyors that will be used with the tunnel boring machine.
The process of loading two of the housings on a flatbed truck for the trip to Miami is chronicled in the video below. The straightforward process was challenged a bit by a steady rain that fell throughout the day. POMT_loadingPhase1_0001 (wmv) POMT_loadingPhase1 (Flash Video)
