This project required the movement of one furnace module from Webb Dock, Melbourne to Coolaroo Melbourne, a distance of only 30km. The method chosen was to use the bookend method with purpose built bookends, this allowed the furnace to travel as close to the ground as possible, maximising the furnaces dimensions and volume. After 6 months of preperations the furnace was moved over two nights to its final location.web0287
