Barnhart was hired by a Wisconsin nuclear power plant to remove and replace four feedwater heaters, a condensate cooler, and two main feed pump motor skids during a spring outage. They then repeated the process in a fall outage in a job that won Barnhart SC&RA’s Rigging Job of the Year in 2012.

The challenges Barnhart faced were many, including the fact that the floor beams wouldn’t support the 124,000 lbs. feed water heaters. Plus the 42’ heaters, which were 6’ in diameter, were very difficult to move through the facility.
