Hake Rigging in Philadelphia is a division of Barnhart NE, and has been doing great work in that area of the country for over 50 years. Recently they broke all historical speed records (or came pretty close) in completing a main power transformer replacement (MPT) at a nuclear power facility.
To get this work done the Hake team had to mobilize quickly. There wasn't going to be be time to lounge around on this one. In fact, we mobilized all heavy-transport, jacking and sliding equipment in approximately 48 hours! (And that includes bringing in components for the Goldholfer trailer from our facility in in Middletown, Connecticut.)
Even with the extremely tough winter weather conditions the Philadelphia team was able to to replace the MPT in just six days! I don't know if it is a world-record, but it ought to be.
Once again, it just goes to show you that cool tools, innovation and experience do make a difference. It's what I always tell folks: if you want a job done safely, you want it done right, and want it done quickly, you had better call Barnhart.
