Huge Tower Moved from Minnesota to Beulah

Posted:

Something two-thirds as tall as the capitol is on it's way to Beulah.

This tower is on the move from Minnesota. The huge piece of equipment is for the anhydrous ammonia facility at the Great Plains Synfuels Plant.

The tower "strips" the carbon dioxide from the solution.

The tower is 157 feet-three inches long and weighs 219-thousand pounds.

It was built by Arrow Tank & Engineering in Cambridge, Minnesota. It left there Tuesday at midnight and is arriving in Beulah today.

Daryl Hill from Basin Electric says it took three months of planning and permitting with the DOT and utility companies to come with a route.

The tower could not be driven down I-94 because the overpasses are too low.

Combined with the truck and trailer--the overall weight going down the road is 443,000 thousand pounds. It's all held up by 110 tires.
