Jul 9, 2002

(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) – Barnhart Crane & Rigging recently completed a heavy lift of power equipment for an energy complex in Wyoming.

Both the 360,000-pound generator and 280,000-pound turbine arrived by rail at the only new-capacity pulverized coal-fired power plant under construction in the United States. They were then transported via hydraulic, multi-axle platform trailer one-quarter mile to the appropriate location to be lifted. “Barnhart Crane & Rigging utilized a gantry rail stator frame to set both units inside the facility,” said John Boone, project manager, Barnhart Crane & Rigging.

“The bidding process for this job was tough; Barnhart did an excellent job. Everything went smoothly, and the job was completed on-time and on-budget,” said site manager for the energy facility.
