Coast Machinery Movers removed the decommissioned press with a special gantry system, a 50-ton tri-lifter and specialty mechanical work. Coast’s responsibility included prepping, dismantling, and loading into sea containers for overseas shipment. Components arrived in good condition to El Mercurio to be used for color enhancements for their daily publications. The dismantling of the press was completed on-time and under budget while utilizing innovative rigging techniques to maintain the integrity of surrounding commissioned press lines.
