Northeast Remsco Replaces West Brook Bridge

Northeast Remsco Construction is replacing the West Brook Bridge over the Wanaque Reservoir in Ringwood, NJ. Northeast Remsco is working off Poseidon P2 7 ft Portable Sectional Barges to lift 160,000 lb girders using a Manitowoc 2250 crane. The girders are a part of the new bridge that is replacing a narrow 90 year old structure. The new bridge is supposed to open in the fall of 2017.

Poseidon Barge, Ltd appreciates the opportunity to work with Northeast Remsco Construction on yet another successful project. Also special thanks to Jerome Lemanowicz, Northeast Remsco Project Manager, for providing such outstanding pictures!

POSEIDON® P10 BARGES IN CHICAGO!

®POSEIDON BARGE MAKES A SPLASH IN CHICAGO

Poseidon® Barge, Fort Wayne, IN is playing a prominent role in the Chicago downtown improvements.  Chicago Steel approached Poseidon with the challenge of floating their Manitowoc 888 Ringer Crane on the Chicago River.  Chicago Steel is subcontracted by Clark Construction.

Clark was contracted to build the 54 story, 1.2 million square feet, 150 North Riverside Project, designed by Goettsch Partners, Inc based in Chicago. The new building is sandwiched between the West Lake Street and West Randolph Street bridges over the Chicago River in downtown Chicago.Poseidon Splash Pic 1

The project parameters required that the crane needed to lift 33 tons using a 300 foot boom floating from a platform on the river.  The Chicago River has heavy commercial barge & recreational craft traffic requiring that half of the river remain open.  This requirement restricted the size of the crane platform adding another challenge to the project.  In addition, the crane and platform had to meet strict railroad safety parameters requiring a larger crane and lift capacity for the project.  The North Riverside building is being constructed over seven active commuter & Amtrak rail lines.  Chicago Steel & Clark Construction is using the crane to construct the lower floors of the building.  After completion of the lower floors, tower cranes will be assemble to complete the building.
