Hydro-ElectricHydro-Electric Plant Overhead Cranes

Whiting Cranes help to maintain the uninterrupted service from Hydro-Electric Plants that sends billions of kilowatts to American industry; keeps industrial plants humming; and homes and streets lighted and safe.

The use of these cranes has a direct effect on the downtime associated with repair or with the time involved in a planned outage, when the inability to generate electricity in one day could exceed by several times the initial cost of the crane. Whiting recognizes that Hydro-Electric Plants are built for a 40 year life or more. In view of this fact, Whiting provides field service, future modifications and replacement parts for years after the initial purchase.
