BENWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - Another big load will be moving through Marshall County next week.

Media outlets report that contractors plan to move a second “de-ethanizer” to Williams Energy’s Oak Grove facility near Cameron, beginning Sunday morning. The trip from a rail yard in Benwood is expected to take three days.

The massive equipment weighs in at about 510,000 pounds and stretches nearly half the length of a football field. It’s used by the energy industry to help separate ethane from natural gas.

The first “de-ethanizer” arrived at the Williams Energy facility in February. The move caused traffic tie-ups after contractors went past the planned stopping point on W.Va. Route 88. That put the massive machinery in the Sherrard area at a time when it wasn’t scheduled to be there.
