The Port of New Orleans has completed one of the heaviest cargo lifts in its history.
It moved a 718-ton tower from a ship to a barge.
The absorption tower is bound for a major plant expansion in Donaldsonville.
The 164-foot-long unit arrived at the port January 10 from Shanghai, China. It was moved at the port this week at the Louisiana Avenue wharf.
Port president Gary LaGrange says the operation shows the port’s ability to handle large and complex cargo.
