Second ‘Superload’ Sunday

Three days of travel planned

March 20, 2014

BENWOOD — For the second time in two months, a Williams Energy de-ethanizer weighing about 510,000 pounds and stretching nearly a half-football-field long found its way to the CSX rail yard via train....

Wow.Like I said, uncommonsense. The ignorance on this thread is astounding. I work for this company. So tell me, oh great one, if this is the cheapest way, but not the safest way, and certainly not the best way....just how would YOU do it? You come on here spewing ignorance with absolutely no evidence to the contrary...please...enlighten me..I'm all ears! Keep in mind though....I know more about this plant than your feeble mind can comprehend....

UNCOMMONSENSE

It is being done this way for ONE reason

It is the CHEAPEST way!

It's not the "safest" way

It's not the "best" way

And it's certainly not what's best for the roads!

They use the CHEAPEST labor, the CHEAPEST material, and the CHEAPEST method of transportation!

And in this case they are using roads built with TAXPAYER dollars so the damage will be the TAXPAYER's problem!

It would have saved taxpayers BILLIONS if only they were made to do as I suggested from day ONE!

"Bring ANY and ALL roads that their vehicles will be using up to "interstate" grade BEFORE the the very FIRST truck hits the road"

A multi-BILLION dollar "teaching moment"

The ignorance of the gas processing industry on this thread is astounding...First off, It's NOT something that can be built on site.The testing this vessel must go through cannot be done on location. Secondly, there is NO pollution associated with this vessel. It's a closed system and is NOT open to the atmosphere! BLACK FIREBALLS??? Nonsense. If you're describing the flare, that's a completely different part of the plant. The flare is the plant's safety valve. The only time smoke should be associated with the flare is if it's operating incorrectly. Flarestacks can use a multitude of different methods to control smoke but during plant upset's, it may take some time before the system reacts to a sudden increase in the flow rate of gas to the flare...resulting in smoke. Why would anyone get on a public website and intentionally show their ignorance? As for union workers? Ha! The plant this will be installed at is now roughly a year behind schedule due to union incompetence!

*******, CAN YOU CITE ANY LAWS... Excuse me. Caps key was on.

*******, can you cite any laws they're breaking? Or should the Sheriff just arrest them because "we don't like your kind 'round these parts..."?

WHY IS OUR SHERIFF DEPUTYS INVOLVED IF THEY CANNOT MAKE ANY DECISIONS? WHY DO WE LET AN OUT OF STATE COMPANY CALL THE SHOTS INSTEAD OF OUR SHERIFF DEPT?

Do DROLLSAVER and his industry chums have any air monitors around this major new source of air pollution? And what, all this ethane for EXPORT? If this place is anything like the MARKWEST plant in Houston, Pa there will be repeated BLACK FIREBALLS released, just like the ones MARKWASTE had last Sunday afternoon. Anyone witnessing an oil spill, chemical release or maritime security incident should call the National Response Center HOTLINE to file a report: 1-800-424-8802

uglyass, do you want to start a trade war with Texas? I don't think so. Remember the Alamo?

We have extremely talented welders here. Especially in the iron workers local. There is truly no reason to build these some where else and ship them here. They should put a tariff on these shipped in items that could be built here by local talent. I know for a fact that local craftsmen can build these.
