We found this great time lapse video hiding on the internet and wanted to bring it to the attention of all the coker people out there. The first part of their journey was from Spain to Los Angeles (7300 miles on a boat) but that wasn’t the hard part. The last 5 miles were the real challenge.
I was fortunate enough to be there during the big move. We all see the coke drums in the structure everyday. It is not until you see these drums next to something “normal” sized like a car or building that you get a real sense of how huge these vessels really are.
