Contex Moves TBMs Across Downtown San Francisco for SFMTA Project

For the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA) Central Subway project, part of the contract for Contex Shipping was to transport two TBMs from San Francisco Pier 80 three miles downtown to the jobsite, Fourth Street between Bryant and Harrison Streets. Since Pier 80 does not have heavy lift cranes, the firm had to discharge the pieces with the vessel's gear and load directly onto the trucks. To move the 130t piece Contex Shipping had to rent two mobile 350t cranes to lift from the vessel onto a Goldhofer truck.
