From Here to There

The challenges of transporting and maintaining heavy equipment in remote areas or areas in urban areas are presented in this article. Contractors and suppliers who have worked in the Arctic Circle and in the subway tunnels of New York City discuss their experiences in adverse conditions, including temperatures that can reach as much as 70 degrees below zero. In extreme temperatures, equipment owners need to make sure that all equipment are properly weathered, by removing and upgrading all hoses and fluids to meet the extreme conditions.
