|Location:||WAC Bennett Dam, Hudson Hope BC|
|General contractor:||T Mar Industries|
|Electrical budget:||$ 600,000|
|Project contact:||George Lambert|
|Date completed:||March, 2008|
This project was the complete rebuild of the GM Shrum Stoplog crane. All systems were disconnected on site and the crane dismantled by Brymark Installations. It was then shipped to T mar Industries in Campbell River where it was stripped down and rebuilt from top to bottom. Each piece of the crane was rewired on the spot and then each section was wired together and tested in the shop to ensure top performance once assembled on site.
A new control room/ generator room was fabricated and wired and a new operator cab was wired and installed. Shore power was installed to facilitate good operating order for the systems on this self powered crane. The cold climate conditions and extreme operating parameters were a challenge on this project and the Vicar crew handled it well.
