In March 2016 our crew did a job in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, that we were very proud of. We replaced an old 1970s steam boiler with a new high efficiency Miura LX150 boiler at the Canadian Linen plant. Installation was a cinch, but removing the old boiler tank – now that was something impressive! Without the additional aid (or cost) of an external heavy lifting crew, or a crane we had to lift a 40,000 LB tank 15 feet in the air and 40 feet out the loading bay door.
How did we do it? Good old fashioned elbow grease… and jacks. Our crew worked nearly round the clock for 3 days to complete this project on the tight shut down schedule. The city inspector in Saskatoon thought it couldn’t be done. But he was pleasantly surprised when he walked in for inspection on Tuesday morning after the long weekend and found the project compete.
Congratulations to the three warriors on the Pacific Mechanical crew who made this small but intense job flow so smoothly.
After this project our foreman took a much needed holiday. In Japan. Go Mitch!
