Suncor 35 + 8 main with outboard monorail
- Designed to Canada’s highest structural, electrical, and mechanical specifications
- 8-tonne auxiliary hoist installed on an outboard monorail
- Unique design allows functionality and hook approaches not typically achieved
This highly customized overhead crane features a 35-tonne top running double girder arrangement.
Alta Gas explosion-proof monorail hoistOperating in an extremely tough environment, design considerations included:
- Outdoor coastal environment
- High winds
- Cold weather
- Classified electrical zone
Designed for maintenance of LNG tanks, this articulating hoist includes a variable radius S-shaped monorail—the first of its kind to receive CSA certification for usage in Canada.
Automated drilling rig,
explosion-proof tandem cranes
- Nestable interlocking structure
- Plumbing and flow control on energy chain arrangements
- Quick connecting hoist and trolleys provide robust functionality in the field
This hydraulic-powered set of two bridge cranes features two 18-tonne hoists per bridge. Electrical radio controls for hazardous locations allow functionality and tandem lifting to 72-tonne capacity.
Steel fabricator inspection
Our client runs a high-production fabrication facility where downtime is extremely costly and accessing equipment for inspection and maintenance is highly challenging.
The eight key cranes in the facility are inspected on a schedule of two per day over four days between afternoon and night-shift transition.
In this scenario, the client provides spare parts so the inspections also include maintenance and repairs. Through this arrangement, we have virtually eliminated breakdown calls and drops in productive use of the cranes.
Machine shop inspection
A new client contacted us with a shock loaded crane, so we performed an inspection including structural bolt checks. We performed an uncommon test of the connection points on columns and runways—and we discovered over 75 loose bolts. The crane was immediately tagged out before we re-torqued and re-certifed the system.
Steel supplier inspection
Several pieces of equipment for a local steel manufacturer were not compliant due to missing paperwork. After completing inspection, we presented a a plan of action to bring the client into compliance.
The client was not fully in agreement that this paperwork was necessary, but proceeded based on our recommendations.
Shortly after we brought the equipment into compliance, Alberta OH & S performed an unscheduled audit with flawless results.
Coating and painting business
Our client had a production hoist that was key to their process. The hoist went down with a damaged motor, which had a several month lead time and a $10,000+ cost.
We oriented the hoist on a custom-built ultra-low headroom trolley. Our service technicians took the hoist down and used an existing stock hoist, modified and engineered a new trolley, and had the hoist reinstalled within a few days.
BC-based wood processing business
Our client was looking to replace existing equipment nearing the end of its lifecycle; but the facility had an extremely short shutdown window.
We built a new bridge panel and full cable and control package for the system, replacing everything except the structure. We also included three custom-gauged top-running double girder hoists to be installed on a single bridge.
The radio system allowed any combination of the three hoists to lift with a summary display of the mass. All electrical was quick connect, so the project could be completed seamlessly in the short shutdown window.
