After a long time i got some encouraging news.
Transportation of what is claimed to be the world's largest Vacuum Column. Manufactured by L&T
This column weighed about 1250 MT having middle section diameter of about 15Mtrs.
Sea and Land Transportation was done by J.M. Baxi & Co. in the month of Oct 2011 from Hazira to Paradip. 
The Load on/Load off was done on 24 Axle Lines in side joined combination (24x2=48Axle lines) of KAMAG K25 series Hydraulic Trailers. The trailers had self-propelled modules to give the system SPMT functionality. Here are some photographs.
