Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing recently completed a job that required both engineering, manufacturing, and fabrication services. Searching for an efficient and safer alternative to transport reels, Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing was tasked with creating a Reel Winder Trailer to fit specific client needs.
There are many unique specifications that the client required Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing to adhere to to ensure the success of the Reel Winder Trailer.
The location that the reels were to be moved is very narrow. Therefore, the Reel Winder Trailer had to be engineered to move through this space, while still allowing for the pick up of different sizes of reels from diameter to width.
The engineered Reel Winder Trailer is narrow and capable of picking up various sizes of reels up to a maximum capacity of 21 tons using hydraulic auxiliary outlets.
Wire rope, plastic, pipe, and numerous other products that come on a reel can be transported using the Reel Winder Trailer. Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing was able to successfully meet the client's specific and unique needs in order to provide a superior solution for reel transport.

Designed by Fortis, the Retrieval Skid Platform was created with a series of snatch blocks for the retrieval of heavy equipment including Scoop Trams and other various machines in underground conditions where the drift or passage has collapsed and machine is unable to drive out with its own power. The Skid Platform is designed to increase the power output by a factor of 8 and decrease the pull speed by the same factor of 8. The Retrieval Skid Platform successfully extracted a scoop out of a drift at a Northern Cameco Uranium mine. The previous method of extractions would have typically involved bolting d-plates to the wall. The Retrieval Skid Platform increases the safety of equipment retrieval and has low failure rates.
