In September, Stinson Aerial Services provided heavy lift helicopter services to assist with the emergency reinforcement of the upper dam at Myra Falls, British Columbia.
We teamed with Canadian Air-Crane Ltd. (CAC) to place an excavator, boom and counter weight plus 27 concrete blocks to the upper dam in under 7 hours of flight time. The task required 9 heavy lifts of the concrete blocks in multiples of 3, weighing 14,500 lbs per lift.
Western Forest Products Inc., who operates the Erickson S64 Aircrane on an annual basis, released the aircraft for use in this emergency project. The S64 pilots put the excavator together with precision in 3 pieces under direct supervision of the CAC project managers.
We were proud to assist with this project and work with such a great team of professionals.
