A Dam Good Job by Whiting
Whiting modernized two (2) 70 ton Gate House cranes and one (1) 150 ton Powerhouse crane which service a hydroelectric power plant located southwest of St Louis, MO. The modernizations were in order to meet new stringent owner operational policies and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Dam Safety Program. Although original factory installed crane controls (circa 1930’s) were in good condition, modernization considerations called for replacing the existing motors and controls to meet new operational requirements.
