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.
Finning was familiar with our company from past successful projects, including Finning’s West Edmonton expansion in 2009.
We were chosen because we were able to provide Finning with all of their desired special options at a reasonable cost. Our manufacturing capabilities gave the contractor the confidence that we could manufacture and deliver all 16 cranes in the required time frame.
A lengthy year long procurement process due to the the stringent crane design criteria caused Finning’s project to run behind schedule.
Using our in-house expertise, we developed a special installation plan that would allow us to install the heavy duty capacity cranes and permitted Finning to continue with construction so they could meet their project deadline.
We added auxiliary trolley and hoists to the underside of one crane girder on each crane, which allowed Finning to get accurate hook coverage to the long travel limits, maximizing their workable floor space.
We provided our largest single crane order in the company’s history on time and on budget.
Since 2013, we have trusted WF Steel and Crane to be our partner on multiple project. They provide exceptional fabrication in record on time. The WF Steel and Crane team helps ensure that we exceed client expectations.
