Stevens lifts on Great Pee Dee

PCL Construction is using Stevens Towing’s 150-ton (136.1-tonne) capacity Clyde 32 floating crane for a bridge demolition project in South Carolina.

Working on the Great Pee Dee River, the crane is lifting parts weighing up to 145 tons (131.5 tonnes). The components include road beds measuring 120 ft (36.6 m) long, concrete piles and structural beams.

Stevens Towing is also providing an experienced crane operator and rigger to complete the project.

Elsewhere, the company’s shipyard and heavy lift teams have been working on the last phase of a project for RMK Merrill Stevens in Florida. In August, Stevens Towing delivered Merrill Stevens’ Pearlson ship lift system.

The project included loading the disassembled ship lift in Norfolk, Virginia and delivering it to Stevens Towing’s shipyard in Yonges Island, where wood decking was installed.

The complete ship lift system was loaded on to the Stevens 2501 ABS deck barge and towed to Miami using the ocean tug Sea Crescent.

In Miami, Stevens Towing collaborated with Hempstead Marine for transit along the Miami River.
