WF worked with P & H MinePro to design, supply, and install two 100 tonne cranes and a crane door system for its Ft. McMurray Facility in 2009. In 2010, P & H planned to construct a similar facility at its Mesa, Arizona, facility and asked WF to design and manufacture its crane door.

Russel approached WF in early 2014 to assist with preliminary design and budgets for a project involving heavy steel warehouse cranes. The cranes were tendered in spring and WF was awarded the contract the following summer. Cranes were delivered installed in 2015.
Finning’s project required 16 cranes ranging for 20 to 50 tonnes that would need to provide maximum hook coverage without sacrificing the size or reliability of the equipment. It would be the largest single crane order in our company’s history.
Enbridge approached WF to build a crane for outdoor maintenance that would be installed over live oil and gas process equipment and that would be able to withstand extremely cold temperatures. It would be one of the largest spanning cranes in all of Alberta.
In 2012, WF was sourced by TAHK Projects to complete structural fabrication of a gas plant expansion. TAHK’s role was delivering completed modules to site, including all mechanical. With successful delivery of the modules necessary for field crews to begin work, schedules were tight. WF ensured TAHK met deadlines and the project succeeded on schedule.
In 2009, WF worked on a barge project designed to assist in tailings pond reclamation efforts. WF was selected to fabricate the pontoons and main structural components. The pontoons were designed in Houston by an engineering group familiar with marine design, leading to some unique fabrication requirements. WF fabricated and leak tested the pontoons prior to shipment to a module yard where the entire barge was trial fit.
Designed as three separate modular pieces, these buildings were meant to be constructed individually and stacked on site when installed. WF built five such buildings, including handrails, ladders, and grating.
WF was awarded a vessel platform contract (both circular and square) for 30 vessels on a local site expansion. The total scope for this project was 135 vessel platforms and 79 caged ladders. WF was responsible for all structural design and fabrication of these platforms.
