Location: Prince George, BC, Canada

Global Rigging & Transport announced it has completed the design, fabrication, and operation of a custom self-jacking frame and dolly delivery system required for a major shut down at a pulp and paper mill located in central BC.  The system was used in the demolition and rebuild of a recovery boiler floor and wall platens.

GRT's design team worked with members of the clients engineering team at Canadian Industrial Mill Services (CIMS) to come up with an innovative and unprecedented system to remove & replace an aged recovery boiler. GRT was tasked with inventing a system which would speed up the conventional method of using tuggers & floor rollers to remove & replace the wall platens & floor sections of the boiler.

Under tight time lines and unproven systems, GRT's team headed by Andrew Johnson, construction manager of GRT, were successful in designing, fabricating, testing and operating the multi-functional system safely and were able to assist Canadian Industrial Mill Service to complete the project a week ahead of schedule.

Management and staff at GRT is pleased with the outcome of the project and their contribution and look forward to working with CIMS & Canfor on future endeavours.
