Successful End to a Busy Season!

[subheading_3]As we have discussed in previous newsletters, E-Crane has had a busy Spring with E-Cranes going up all across the United States.[/subheading_3]

Savage Valero refinery

The 1500 Series / Model 9317 crawler mounted E-Crane for the Savage Services operating at the Valero St. Charles refinery in New Orleans, LA is currently up and running. The installation was completed in late March for this E-Crane which is being used to handle coke inside the refinery. This will be the first E-Crane owned by Savage who has nearly 10 years of experience operating E-Cranes for clients at bulk unloading terminals in Lena, Louisiana, and Nova Scotia, Canada.

Two material handlers for CalPortland

In early April, two MH1200 Series / 11290 barge mounted E-Cranes for CalPortland in Seattle, WA were installed on the work barge. The installation of both E-Cranes took place in less than three weeks! These cranes will be used to unload tunnel spoils out of river barges as a part of the Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement project. The Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement is a deep-bore road tunnel that is currently under construction in Seattle.

American Recycling

Finally, the commissioning of the 700 Series / Model 4290 pedestal mounted E-Crane for American Recycling was recently completed in Fort Worth, Texas. The entire installation was a success, and took E-Crane service technicians only nine (9) days to complete from start to finish. The E-Crane is currently in operation feeding scrap into a 2000hp shredder. The E-Crane has a maximum outreach of 29 meters (95′) and a duty cycle capacity of 5.5 Mtons (6.1 UStons). This is the second E-Crane success in the scrap industry in the past year. The first E-Crane for the scrap industry in the United States was installed last summer at Nucor General Recycling for feeding auto bodies into a shredder.

International Cooperation

For the installations of Calportland and American Recycling, E-Crane International USA worked closely together with E-Crane Worldwide, based in Belgium. Two service technicians came over from the Belgian office to help complete the installations of these cranes.
