Filter Press Installation

Fenton Rigging & Contracting, Inc. partnered with a local mechanical contractor to deliver and set a 32,000 lb. filter press on an elevated platform.  Getting the press into its current location meant overcoming several obstacles.  The platform is located in a tight space and didn’t leave room to utilize conventional rigging methods.  Coupled with the limited headroom that prevented any lifting from overhead, Fenton employed its 75-ton Tri-Lifter to get the job done, safely and on-time! 


Fenton Rigging & Contracting, Inc. was recently tasked with moving two sculptures from Pyramid Hill to the Cincinnati Art Museum.  Fenton utilized a variety of equipment to move the sculptures, specifically its new Tadano ATF-110G-5 crane.  The pieces were relocated to their temporary new home meeting all of the customer’s expectations.  WKRC Cincinnati covered the story as can be seen here.

Bridge Exchange

Fenton performed a 24-hour bridge exchange for a Class I Railroad.  The total weight of the old bridge was nearly 300 tons.  Fenton utilized two 550-ton hydraulic cranes with mega wings in order to maximize time and create efficiency for the railroad.  In addition, Fenton replaced the old backwalls with new precast concrete.  To complete the project, Fenton assembled and slid into place the new 450 ton bridge to accommodate the newer, heavier requirements of the railroad.
