A reactor was transported and installed for the ecopetrol plant in Barrancabermeja.
Transportes Montejo moved the new reactor to the plant, unloaded the old one, using two cranes (since it was in a vertical position and being a cylinder, it had to be positioned horizontally on the floor), so it was necessary to perform a procedure called “horizontalization”, the old one was positioned on the floor on a base, the new one was lifted with two cranes, one of them with a base and the other one with two cranes. The old one was positioned on the floor on a base, the new one was lifted with two cranes, one from each end, (as it was in transport position, i.e. horizontally, it was necessary to verticalize), verticalization was performed with two cranes, and finally the new reactor was positioned on site with only one crane.
Main difficulties: horizontalization and verticalization process are very careful procedures of great precision and very slow movements.
