Cleanup has been slow because one of the tanks contains ethanol and the remainder contain vinyl chloride.

Where did that mammoth crane come from? Is it sitting on a barge?

I think last week it was on here as to be coming from NY and on a barge to do the clean up.

Weeks Marine is a well known marine company that specializes in barge operations, heavy lifts and harbor operations. If this is Weeks 533 it is the same 500 ton crane on a 300 foot crane barge that lifted the space shuttle Enterprise onto the carrier Intrepid in New York last June. It also lifted a British Airways Concorde onto the Intrepid Sea and Air and Space museum. And it plucked the downed Body of US Air flight 1549 from the Hudson in 2009 after it made the emergency landing. All this from Professional Mariner magazine. And it would take some tme to move it from New York Harbor around the New Jersey land mass and up the Delaware River, as sea conditions have to be fairly calm.
