New Hoist Installation – 2020

Lucky Peak Dam is located on the Boise River. These hoists are used to lift emergency gates in the powerhouse.

Made in the USA

The hoists for this project were designed, manufactured, and tested at the WEMCO facility by our highly trained and qualified team.

Load Tested

Each hoist was load tested to 125% of the rated capacity as shown below. The weights for load testing weighed half a million pounds.

Onsite Installation

The facility is only accessible from a long narrow bridge & the entire installation was done through a 4-foot wide roof opening.
