Oil companies periodically need to dispose of pipe while still coiled. Still under tension, these twenty-tonne spools present a challenge for safe disposal.
CAC received 25 of these from a single project in Red Deer in 2013.

Heavy equipment transport. The client wanted the spools off its site. At more than 20 tonnes per spool, CAC could not use single-axle trucks, and used its dedicated fleet of more than a dozen trailers to haul the spools to its Edmonton yard for dismantling.
Large volume. In a matter of a few months, CAC was able to move all of the material offshore.


CAC came in ahead of schedule and on budget. The client is satisfied and is available for references.
