In the 4th Quarter of 2015, we teamed up with Emmert International and provided the personnel, equipment, engineering, and expertise to remove and replace a 800,000 lb transformer at Laramie River Power Plant in Wheatland, Wyoming.
The existing transformer required utilization of our Jack & Slide and Gantry Lift equipment, due to great load weights and minimal work space. The existing transformer was slid underneath our gantries. The gantries were then utilized to lift the load for clearance of our Scheuerle Platform Trailer (12 lines, 6x6 side by side). To install the replacement transformer, the same strategy was utilized in reverse order.
Critical Lift Plans, Heavy-Haul Diagrams, Rigging Plans, Soil Reports, & Ground Bearing Pressure Studies were required, amounting to over 100 hours of project planning and engineering.
