Hydrocracking reactors with mass 350-1300 tons each (total weight of the equipment exceeds 2,5 thousand tons) and with length of over 40 meters – for their transportation there was needed a specially created transport module consisting of 24 axis, 384 wheels.

The self-propelled platform overcame more than 210 km within several months – its average travelling speed was only 1,5 km/h. The height of the load was comparable with the height of a three-storey building, that is why along the whole way they had to demount all road signs and even to lift wires. The route was crossing fourteen rivers and creeks, two railroads. To let it move further they constructed temporary reinforced bridges and bypasses.
