Major Crane Electrical Upgrade And Modernization

We recently completed a major crane upgrade on 2×16 ton overhead crane.  This upgrade included all new electrical panels that we built in house.  These panels were then approved by Inspections Group to meet CSA standard.

We also removed all of the old wound rotor motors and resistor banks and installed new 2 speed squirrel cage induction motors.  These motors were ordered to match the existing motor frame size to ensure a simple and clean installation.

Once we completed installing all of the new components the crane was load tested at 100% and 125% of its rated capacity to ensure proper operation of all functions.

Contact us to see how our modernization service can improve your operation and maintenance requirements.
