APR 2010 – JUN 2011 – Denison Dam Crane Rehabilitation, USACE, Tulsa District
The Denison Dam crane rehabilitation project consisted of one 120 Ton Intake Gantry Crane. Project contract value was $1,148,576.51. This project included the design and engineering bridge trucks, main & auxiliary hoist systems, cable drums, operator’s cab, drive systems, and crane bumpers. Electrical engineering and manufacturing included PLC, VFD, and modernized crane controls.
OCT 2008 – MAR 2009 – PGE Round Butte, Bridge & Gantry Cranes – PGE – Portland, Oregon
This project included mechanical engineering for sub-contracted portion of a crane project consisting of bridge and gantry cranes. Crane work included retrofits on a 3T bridge crane and 3T special gantry crane. A unique aspect of this project was the combination of fixed and floating structures used for bridge and gantry crane travel to facilitate fish collection. The gantry runs on a hinged bridge from shore to the floating fish collection facility; the altitude between structures varies which required that the cranes be capable of traveling at an incline.
