Power Dynamics LLC delivers state-of-the-art Cable Pulling Unit for W. A. Chester LLC
STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Power Dynamics LLC, under contract to W. A. Chester, LLC, has delivered a 50 kip mobile power cable pulling unit.
Power Dynamics provided design services needed to tailor the unit to meet the client’s specific needs. The unit was manufactured at PDI’s headquarters located at Stennis Space Center, MS.
The pulling unit features a traction winch and storage reel combination that can pull a constant tension of 50,000 lbs. over 6500 ft. of 1-1/8″ wire rope.
The primary purpose of the unit is to pull three conductors of high voltage power cable simultaneously through a single underground pipe duct. The operators cab contains a custom built processor that monitors load, speed and length of cable. A portable control console allows the operator to perform critical operations out of the cab while observing conditions in the man hole.
The built-to-order platform for the pulling unit was provided by Kenworth. It is a one-of-a-kind chassis that was specifically designed and equipped to handle the weight of the pulling unit and to meet DOT weight standards. Final weight at completion of the chassis, bed, winch, storage reel, wire rope, cab and power unit was just under the maximum allowed gross vehicle weight of 68,000 lbs.
