Beautiful work Bruce. My company builds modules as well for various oil and gas projects. We use transport companies and Schuerle and Goldhofer trailers for moving them to site. Your model representation is very good!

That is amazing, love the truck with all it’s detail. Please excuse my ignorance, but what is “the module”? Assume that’s the huge thing in pictures 4, 5, and 6, but what is it for (ie – the real one).
Thanks,
Steve

Not to put words in Bruce’s mouth but this particular module is a pipe rack module. They are constructed off site in fabrication and assembly yards. They are then transported to an oil and gas facility site and set on pilings and piping and steel are interconnected. There are many types of modules including large equipment modules that contain vessels and rotating equipment. They are fabricated, hydro-tested, painted, heat traced, insulated etc. prior to going to site and then assembled to end up with a complete production facility. This reduces on site costs including travel and cam costs in many instances.

Here’s an example of pipe rack and equipment modules being set in place on one of our projects. The red crane is a 1600 ton luffing jib crane with a 500’ boom to give you an idea of scale.

What a fabulous job you have done, just amazing. It would be nice if you could repost some of the pictures that are up side down. That trailer and fittings is incredible.

Bruce, first the prime mover is magnificent.
BUT sir the scratch built trailer and rigging are superb craftsmanship, extremely well done.

For sure that I enjoy this build. Now I also can understand why it took some time between your post. What a lot of work and so nicely done. Hat off Bruce. Did you made a drawing or an (scaled) example before you started?
