Case Study

Idaho Falls Wind Turbine

via General Electric

In November 2021, GE called on NessCampbell’s Boise Division to provide crane services for a wind turbine maintenance project in Idaho Falls.

The Challenge

The project’s unique challenges included meeting GE’s schedule, which called for project completion before Thanksgiving, alongside colder than normal temperatures in November. The chilly weather caused hazardous ground conditions with snow and ice.

The Solution

NessCampbell provided crane services to GE to take down blades, rotors, and nacelles on four wind turbines in Idaho Falls, as well as the transportation of the Liebherr LR1300SX 330 Ton Crawler Crane from NessCampbell’s Portland yard. Our engineering team calculated win sail and capacity challenges, and crane crews worked long hours to meet GE’s critical schedule. Our experience with cold-weather projects helped us prepare crane surfaces.
