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.

The mining consumable, Track Pins, were developed by Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing to help assist undercutters at various mine sites.
Undercutters are used to cut the floor or wall in the mine to create a pathway so the ground is able to move. The Track Pin was created for the Under Cutter to ensure that it continuously operates effectively.
The Track Pin helps reduce the maintenance on mining Undercutters. Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing's Track Pin is made with an alternative type of steel to safeguard it from breaking.
