With over a thousand bolts and as many welds Valport riggers and stevedores secured the nine World Trade Centre antenna tower components to the deck of a barge for its easterly journey from the Port of Valleyfield to a staging area in the Port of Newark, New Jersey.
As we reported in a previous news item the job was nothing really new or particularly large for a company that has moved some of the world's largest mining equipment, factories, steel and concrete components. Rather, it was the cargo itself - component parts for the replacement of New York's Twin Towers destroyed during the attacks of 9-11.
We're pleased to report that the 1500 mile journey was uneventful and the Atlantic Salvor made its delivery on November 26. It has been reported that the 458-foot tower will be erected through December making 1-WTC the tallest standing structures in the Western world.
