On Friday morning the crew used a massive crane to load it onto a barge. The barge is painted pink to call attention to breast cancer.

The coker bubble tower weighs 316,850 pounds, is 170 feet 5 inches long and more than 12 feet in diameter.

Cust-O-Fab says it's being shipped to a customer in Ohio, where it will be raised vertically and installed at a refinery.
