Slick Thinking By Basin Electric Transmission System Maintenance


Heavy crane, lots of mud. That’s a problem. Basin Electric’s Transmission System Maintenance crews got creative with the solution. Watch the video to see how crews moved a mobile crane weighing 95,000-pounds (with counterweights in place) into position to rebuild transmission towers destroyed by a tornado on May 22, 2010. The line was returned to service on June 20, 2010.
