Hoisting Equipment Evaluation

Nova Scotia Power

In industry, there is a plethora of lifting devices used for day-to-day operations. Some get taken for granted and operations become mundane, with safety assumed. When a lifting device fails, the result can be catastrophic and increase risk to life safety.

Meco was retained by Nova Scotia Power for structural evaluation of hoisting equipment.  Work involves performing structural analysis, developing a catalogue of drawings, testing, and inspections for all the lifting equipment use for seventeen (17) hydro systems operated and owned by NSPI.  The project ensures that the devices met the present day code and any deficient devices are modified or replaced ensuring the safety of the NSP personnel that must operate the equipment.

Meco's Services Include:

  • Implement any required testing and inspections
  • Perform design checks using applicable codes
  • Prepare design drawings for any new devices or modifications to any existing devices.
