Kenco’s Solution for Open Roads

Kenco was contracted to help move a deisobutanizer from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to a refinery in Superior, Wisconsin, a 17-day trip across 1,600 miles. The bucket truck crew expertly navigated roadways ahead of the load, lifting traffic lights and road signs to make way for the extra-long piece of equipment.

“The deisobutanizer was more than 200 feet long, so making turns was a challenge,” the client explained. “Kenco was able to assist in moving hundreds of traffic signals and road signs at each corner along the route. They had a team of bucket trucks ahead of us, loosening road signs and light poles, so we never had to stop and wait on them.

“Kenco was great to deal with, starting with our initial conference call before the project even began,” said the client. “Once their crew arrived on the job, they were very helpful and efficient and completed the transport without any safety incidents, which is always the most important thing.
