Feed Water Heater
CHANGEOUT

Kansas City Power & Light Station – Sibley, MO

Taylor Crane & Rigging was challenged with removing two 115,000-lb. vessels and reinstalling two new replacement vessels from the second story of a power generation station, all without blocking the roll-up door to the turbine room beneath it. This restriction required the vessels to be accessed, removed and reinstalled from a distance of 60 feet from the building. To overcome this challenging restriction, TCR raised 100 feet of track beam using two separate gantry systems and slid each vessel along the beams to where they could be safely lowered 60 feet away from the building. Once lowered, two Versa-lifts tandem lifted the old vessels off of the track and lifted the new vessels back onto the track.

Additionally, the vessels were too heavy to be skated safely across the second story floor, so TCR used additional track beams inside the building to distribute the weight. TCR used a tailor-made jack and slide system designed in-house to move the vessels across the beams to and from the track beams placed outside. The project was completed on time and to the satisfaction of the customer, who stated, “Your crew interacted well with our crew, overcame obstacles and completed this project safely.
