Crane Department Updates
The Crane department is in the middle of fabricating a 15 ton bridge crane. The job is located in British Columbia at an existing coal mine and is part of an expansion. It will be used in the initial installation and maintenance of coal processing equipment. The crane is designed to operate on 575 volts and meet Class II, Div 2, Group F hazardous environment and must comply with Canadian Standards Association or CUL. The crane is scheduled to ship to the jobsite the end of August.
