Equipment Recovery at Arborfield Saskatchewan

By | Recent Activity

We are on a recovery mission. The assignment: Recover equipment from a plant in Arborfield, SK for install at Virtex Farm Foods.
Our biggest target:  Canola Conditioner by French Oil Machinery Company

Getting this 65,000 lb Canola Conditioner by French out requires a lot of teamwork. We had to remove it through the roof with a 270 ton and 75 ton crane. Kudos to Sterling Crane for their excellent operators! Extreme weather and heavy snow fall added challenge to this controlled demolition and recovery of equipment. Next, transport to Saskatoon, SK and finally, install at Virtex Farm Foods. More to come on that.
