The individual vessels that make up the crystallization system range in size up to 30 meters in length, a diameter of nearly 10 meters, and weigh up to 180 metric tons.  Mainly fabricated and assembled in the United States and Canada over a period of more than a year, these vessels were shipped 200 kilometers to the Legacy job site for installation from the Saskatoon area.
Shipment of the vessels required detailed planning, an approved route plan, and real-time communication with the cooperation of municipalities and utilities potentially impacted by these activities.  As part of a project-specific plan, this ensures the safety of motorists and residents along the trek to the job site.
These vessels are among the largest shipments ever made in the Province of Saskatchewan.  Veolia has a history of successful execution of complex, large-scale projects in Canada for the pulp & paper, chemical processing, and oil & gas industries for more than fifty years.
