MCMECHEN, W.Va. (AP) — A huge moving job will make its way through Marshall County this week.
Called a "de-ethanizer," the massive machinery used by the energy industry weighs in at 510,000 pounds and is 41 yards long. It will be transported on 48 wheels.
The State Journal (http://bit.ly/1cR1xfN) reports that the equipment will help Williams Energy separate ethane from natural gas.
The 30-mile trip from McMechen to the Oak Grove facility near Cameron is expected to take four days at a top speed of 5 mph.
Weather permitting; the company hopes to start the move on Thursday.
