Barnhart Crane & Rigging recently completed a heavy lift of power equipment for Babcock & Wilcox Co. at the Black Hills Corp. Energy Complex. The 360,000-pound generator and 280,000-pound turbine arrived by rail at the pulverized coal-fired power plant under construction near Gillette, Wyo. They were then transported via hydraulic, multi-axle platform trailer one-quarter mile to the appropriate location to be lifted. A gantry rail stator frame was used to set both units inside the facility. Photo courtesy of Barnhart Crane & Rigging.
