Yoga Anand - Andeavor (Formerly Tesoro)
The Andeavor Los Angeles refinery (formerly Tesoro and BP) conducted a significant overhaul of our Overhead Bridge Crane by revamping a circa 1966 P&H crane with a more robust electromagnetic system. Modifications also included replacement gearboxes, dynamic braking installation, revamped cab area with multiple alarm/diagnostic monitoring for the crane operator and operations/maintenance teams. The crane upgrade has mitigated mechanical breakdowns that were symptomatic of outdated, unsupported equipment. The presentation will review what was changed on the crane and how the project was successfully executed.
