Employee Spotlight

Kara Ripley has been the Permit Manager with the company for 2 and 1/2 years and has been a hardworking and valuable part of the Mountain Crane team. Her favorite thing about Mountain Crane is that no day is ever the same and it constantly challenges her abilities and knowledge. Kara is originally from West Valley City, Utah. She has a very cute 9-month old daughter named Emery Reilynn. In her spare time Kara enjoys snowboarding, riding 4 wheelers, playing with her daughter, going “jeeping”, hiking, and watching Motor Cross. She also loves the color pink and her pit bull.

 

Annual Refresher Safety Training

Mountain Crane Service employees went through several consecutive sessions of safety training over the holiday break. Mountain Crane management likes to take advantage of the down time during these winter months to renew certifications and gear up for a new year. Safety is a high priority at Mountain Crane and we had over 90% attendance despite conflicts with holiday plans. Employees are now certified for 2013 through the Wyoming/Montana Safety Council, Utah Safety Council, and MSHA. We had several excellent instructors visit Mountain Crane Service facilities over the course of this training. If you would like additional information regarding these instructors feel free to contact Gary Rehmer at gary@mountaincrane.com.

Wind Maintenance

Mountain Crane Service has been actively involved in the construction and maintenance of wind turbines since the purchase of its first Manitowoc 16000 in 2008. We now have a group of cranes especially suited to this line of work, as well as skilled crews of operators & riggers. These crews are well-versed in the project management, scheduling, and remote jobsite conditions that accompany wind maintenance. They are resilient to adverse weather conditions and perform their tasks safely and efficiently.

For more information on the equipment available to service your next wind farm construction or maintenance project, contact us at estimating@mountaincrane.com. We are willing and able to perform work nationwide.
