American Electric Power’s Amos Plant on the Kanawha River in Charleston, W.Va. — the largest coal-powered electric plant east of the Mississippi — has installed an electric-powered 1500 B Series E-Crane to unload barges of limestone used in flue gas desulfurization (FGD). The high pedestal mounted E-Crane has 95-foot outreach, 15.4 U.S.-ton duty cycle capacity, and 17.1 U.S.-ton lift capacity.

The machine is equipped with E-Crane’s Electronic Machine Management module (EMM) with screen display data for precise and efficient operator control.  E-Crane provided on-the-job training at the Amos Plant, as well as training in a simulator before the crane was delivered.

Amos is the sixth AEP plant to install an E-Crane in the past decade.
