This March, Advanced Crane Technologies will be mobilizing at the Priest Rapids Dam in
Washington state to rehabilitate (2) 350 ton powerhouse bridge cranes. Grant County
P.U.D. awarded Advanced Crane Technologies with a contract to modernize the controls
on (2) seven motion bridge cranes including state-of-the-art flux vector controls on the
hoists. This new system will allow one crane operator to handle the 700 ton loads shared
by both cranes from the cab of one crane. We are also including a 15” color touch screen
interface for the operator which will display loads on the hooks, hook height above the
floor, control system status and alarms as well as other diagnostic functions. Also part of
this contract are all new motors, brakes, festoons & operator cabs. Advanced Crane
Technologies anticipates completing the rehab project this fall.

new controls, new power cable
reel, new diesel generator, rehab of the gantry
trucks & drive machinery.
Advanced Crane Technologies
