Description of the E-Crane

Kinder Morgan needed a state-of-the-art material handler to unload incoming scrap from barges for the new SeverCorr Steel Mill,a state-of-the-art,"next-generation" facility being built in Columbus,MS about eight miles from the Tennessee-Tombigbee waterway.

We looked carefully at several manufacturers' equipment,considering each machine from the standpoint of design,construction,reputation,service life and overall operating efficiency and economy,as well as parts and service backup.E-Crane® wasn't a difficult choice.We've had previous experience operating a similar model E-Crane® at an installation in Venezuela for five years now,and it has performed as expected.

Kinder Morgan transfersscrap and other materials from barges onto trucksfor transport to the nearby SeverCorr facility."Initially we sat down with the E-Crane® people and suppliers of other components for our new facility and brainstormed design and construction possibilities.As far as the E-Crane® machine is concerned,we told them what we wanted to accomplish and they designed a crane specifically to meet our needs.Our new E-Crane® can easily handle present loads with no problem and it gives us extra capacity for growth down the road",said Ruff.
