Fortis Works with Prairie Crane, Northern Strands, & ATS Traffic to Perform Swing Stage Replacement in Regina

During the first month of 2019, Fortis partnered with sister company Northern Strands in Regina at the SaskTel headquarters to complete a Swing Stage replacement on the approximate 200' rooftop. 

A 275T crane was supplied by Prairie Crane and a major road closure, just over half of Saskatchewan Drive, was setup by ATS Traffic. The crane spanned just over a one block radius. 

We would like to thank Prairie Crane and ATS Traffic for helping facilitate completing this job as effectively and as safe as possible.

    Fortis Continues To Develop Engineered Lift Plans For The Mining Industry

    Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing has an abundance of experience in providing lift studies and engineered lift plans for the Potash Mines of Saskatchewan with recent experience including development of lowering procedures with Blair Hoists and Sinking Winches

    Fortis has also developed a test lifting criteria for components which confirms that each piece of equipment hangs as per design within the individual shaft parameters which virtually eliminates rigging issues during shaft lowering

    Fortis rigging plans utilize our underground experience to maximize the capabilities of the shaft profile and hoist lifting capabilities

    Reduction in disassembly of equipment to get underground has saved client time and money. 

    Comprehensive lowering methodologies typically include a site specific material hoisting basket design that is compatible with the sinking arrangement if a cage is not available. This allows 'light loads' on pallets, bundles, or crates to be safely transported underground with speed and consistency.

    Fortis is an industry leader in the development of critical lift plans for the mining and construction industries.
