Abstract: The use of specialized heavy equipment in the construction phase of the 800-mile Trans-Alaska Pipeline is described. The types include equipment used in bending, taping and insulating the 48-in. pipe used for the pipeline. Stretching from Prudhoe Bay on the North Slope and Beaufort Sea to the southern terminal at Valdez on the Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska, the pipeline construction task, with the combination of varied arctic terrain, severe climatic conditions, conservational and environmental restraints, and rigid scheduling is a project unlike any that has been undertaken hefore.
