United Engineering KLTP Platforms

In 2022, Nickel Bros had the pleasure of working with United Engineering on the transportation of equipment for KLTP. The cargo consisted of a 210,000 lbs / 105 T platform and a 194,000 lbs / 97 T intake screen. Nickel Bros relocated this equipment from the United Engineering Shop near Pat Bay to a barge loading location. Our team loaded both pieces onto the barge (supplied by United Engineering) so it could sail off to new adventures!
