The successful load of six rotary kilns
Federal Maritime Terminals became responsible for the load of six sections of the rotary kiln in the Port of Milwaukee. The cargo was huge with the total weight of 225,000 pounds. The load was required for the further transportation of the sections to Quebec, Canada. The destination was in the Port-Daniels–Gascons situated in the Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine region. The cargo was ordered by McInnis Cement (a Canadian industrial firm).
As for the size of the cargo, each section was 44 feet long and 17 feet in diameter. The structure of the units was cylindrical. They were aimed at the rotation and raise of materials to a high temperature.

The load was carried out by means of heavy-lift cranes located in the port. Their capacity totaled up to 220 net tonnes. Thus, FMT managed to successfully complete their task.
