There is No Substitute for Experience

A Mega Move

When an Edward’s client sold two gas turbine generators to a power plant in rural Kentucky, it wasn’t long before they realized that delivery of these mega-sized components would present a multitude of challenges. Edwards Moving & Rigging would develop a comprehensive plan over several years that would culminate in an on-time, on budget delivery despite record breaking snowfall and a multitude of challenges.

      • Three of which were less than 16 feet tall and two with less than 2 inches of clearance.
    • TOTAL AXLES: 38
