The 682-tonne, 63-metre-long piece of petrochemical development equipment, called a de-ethanizer stripper, will be moved from Edmonton to the Industrial Heartland over four days, Jan. 19-22.

The stripper separates ethane from liquid natural gas to be reused elsewhere in the process or for other petrochemical products (e.g. fuel). On Jan. 6, an 820-tonne splitter travelled from Edmonton to the same region.
