12-bar Coke Tower Lift

Using a 12-bar configuration engineered by Versabar, three coke towers are lifted simultaneously in a refinery in Port Arthur, Texas. Measuring 176' across and 160' tall, the three-tower structure provided the challenge of designing a rigging harness that would distribute the load evenly for a level lift without causing any damage to the delicate structure of the towers themselves. Including the rigging, the total weight of this lift is 1,450 tons, making it the largest land lift Versabar has performed to date.
