Horizontal Desalter Vessel


The staff and employees at Hooper Welding are extremely proud to announce the first ever shipment from our new facility, Hooper Engineered Vessels International.

HEVI as it has grown to be known is a certified ASME & National Board facility, a division of Hooper Welding Enterprises Limited, opened in 2009. This facility is located in the Hamilton Harbour, Hamilton, Ontario. It is located on 5 acres dockside and has 40’ clear hook height, over 500 ton lift capacity and doors that can support vessels up to 30’ diameter.

This past week, HEVI shipped its first ever vessel, loaded out on a heavy lift ship. The vessel was a horizontal Desalter Vessel, 168”ID, over 140’ length designed and manufactured to ASME Section VIII, Div.1. This vessel weighed over 400,000 lbs, painted and fully insulated prior to shipment. It was loaded seamlessly on the dock, in very short time and was on its way to a dockside destination in the United States of America.
