Transport

Xblocs can be moved by different means of transport. Xblocs are transported from construction site to the possible storage yard and then to site.

For short distances the Xblocs can be transported individually by wheel loaders, by trucks and flatbeds. With flatbeds with more than 1 Xbloc at the same time. On the production site tower cranes or portal cranes are sometimes used to move Xblocs from the casting location to a (temporary) storage yard.

When the distance between yard and site is relatively large which is often the case when the production site is not located at the project site, Xblocs are usually transported by barge. Marine transport has been done for different projects for various distances. The advantage of marine transport is that many Xblocs can be transported at once.
