 BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- The first of at least 29 steel modules being manufactured
 in Billings have begun traveling to an oil sands project in Canada.
   The Billings Gazette reports the first two loads left Bay Ltd. At 2 a.m. Monday and
traveled the back roads north to the Port of Sweet Grass, where they crossed into
 Canada on Wednesday.
   Bill Parker, the company's senior manager in Billings, says a third module
left Wednesday and a fourth was scheduled to leave Friday.
   The massive modules hold piping, electrical cable, valves and other equipment.
The first nine will be put together to form a sulfur recovery unit. The Depart
ment of Transportation issued permits for the large loads last week.
   Bay Ltd.'s workforce for the modules project reached 279 people.
