    Now this is a vessel!

    This is the heaviest load ever transported over Alberta Highways.

    On Saturday it was between Wandering River and Mariana Lakes.

    travels 10 - 15 km/hr

    seven Premay tractors - three pulling and four pushing - most
    tractors were tri-axle

    1.7 million pounds

    It took 9 days to get from Edmonton to Suncor.

    It's a coker fractionator, which separates the various crude oil products.

    I don't get the sense of assembling a thousand-ton cylinder somewhere and then deciding to send it down the highway to reach its destination. Maybe this is kind of an ignorant question, but why not build it where it belongs?
