Chevron Reclamation Project

Chevron Reclamation Project

We were surprised to have recieved a letter from Chevron, pertaining to our Utah Reclamation project.

"The project called for the removal of four vessels of unknown weight that were filled with Asbestos. Project manager Brett Krage, in all spent over two years making sure this project was safely finished."

This was taken from our project story.

This story was also featured in Crane Hot Lines - July 2012 Issue. The article was titled "Playing it Safe" and can be viewed here. A clever title for a project that required a high level of PPE and planning. When you are dealing with asbestos you cannot take any chances. Chevron understood this and made sure our crew was never in harms way. It was a pleasure and joy to work with Chevron, once again.

Below is the thank you letter that was sent our way.

Committed to Crane Safety with NCCCO

Committed to Crane Safety with NCCCO

Being in the crane rental industry is not easy. We have to rely solely on the qualifications, technical knowledge, and experience of everybody on our team. We know we have a strong and knowledgeable staff here at Crane Service, Inc. But how can we convey this to our clients, and the public at large? Well first by having our staff licensed and certified through credible companies, like the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, also known as NCCCO. Our operators are certified through the NCCCO organization.

To further our involvement we are applying to be a part of the NCCCO Employer Recognition program.

"The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) is pleased to announce the introduction of its Committed to Crane Safety Employer Recognition Program. This program was created to recognize the time, effort, and dedication to safety that employers demonstrate by certifying their crane operators, signalpersons, and riggers through NCCCO.

Companies that participate in this recognition program enhance their standing by demonstrating to their clients, potential clients, and employees that safety through CCO certification is a priority. Companies that achieve recognition are nationally recognized for their commitment on the NCCCO website, in the CCO newsletter, and in other industry media."

This is a strong movement forward to help you become more credible for your clients, as well. To learn more follow this link the the NCCCO website.

About the Manitowoc 16000

About the Manitowoc 16000

We are excited to have added the Manitowoc 16000 to our fleet. The machine is absolutely incredible. The Manitowoc 16000 is a very sought after crane for wind work, and overall heavy picks. The crane is 440 ton class crane before the Max-er attachment. Which adds another 256 tons of counterweight.

The 16000 has specialized boom configurations for the wind industry. The wind tip or harley jib allow the crane to get close to wind towers and yet still have reach above the nacelle. Add the WA boom, which is a heavier and more rigid boom, and you are ready to safely work on a wind tower. The WA boom is also commonly used in conjunction with heavy lifts. In many cases the Manitowoc 16000 can out chart a Manitowoc 2250, while still requiring less truck loads to move the crane in, also known as mobilization. Likewise, there are some configurations where the Manitowoc 2250 in Max-er can out pick the 16000. The 16000 is a highly sought after crane for rental. Crane rental for this crane typically is booked months in advance to ensure availability.

All in all this is quite an impressive machine to work around. Looking up at a nacelle from the cab or the ground is a site to see. We have included a few pictures of this crane to help bring you into our industry and show you what we do.

We are rebuilding brakes

We are rebuilding brakes

We are rebuilding the brakes and suspension components on a trailer today. Maintenance of your crane and equipment fleet isn't just to benefit the customers uptime or to make it aesthetically pleasing. It is more than that. Our equipment has to be maintained to the highest level to ensure we are keeping the public at large safe when we are hauling 80,000 lbs down the highways of America. Sure more uptime is a result of this, but not reason we do it.

We have to make sure every person we touch directly or indirectly isn't affected by our equipment.

We are a family at Crane Service, Inc bonded by one common goal - the desire and dedication to be safe.
