Led by Frank Leckey and Ray Fortin, Resolve was hired to transport two cement silos, which are 90 feet tall and weigh approx. 90 tons each, from Paradise Island to Arawak Key, Bahamas where they were to be reinstalled on a new foundation.

The job consisted of walking the 450 Ton 11320 American Crane off of the RMG 300 barge and utilized a second crane to assist in lowering the silos on their sides so they could be set on the barge for transport to Arawak Key. Once they arrived at Arawak Key, they were unloaded from the barge and successfully set upright on the new foundation.
