This is one of the biggest loads on South African roads, a splitter and an orthoflow converter. The lower section of the splitter will consist of four 700 horsepower haulers, two trailers and a vessel that is 64 meters long, 8,5 meters wide and 11 metres high. The trailer combinations will be accompanied by service trucks carrying thousands of liters of Sasol diesel, as well as tires and spares. Several bridges over which the equipment travels have already been reinforced and in places, Eskom will have to lift or even take down electrical cables, then re-erect them as the vehicles pass through.

As part of its R4,4 billion programme to produce cleaner burning liquid fuels in line with global trends and anticipated new local fuel specifications, Sasol will be moving 1 200 tonnes of high-tech engineering equipment from Richards Bay to Secunda in November and during the first quarter of 2005.
