Can Ridge Industries Ltd.: Mastering Precision in Urban Infrastructure Projects

At the bustling heart of Vancouver’s urban landscape lies a testament to precision and efficiency – the recent installation of shoring and fuel storage tanks underground for a gas station at a heavily trafficked intersection. Can Ridge Industries Ltd., renowned for its expertise in heavy lifting and logistical finesse, orchestrated this intricate operation seamlessly.

Central to this success was Can Ridge’s Unit 20; a formidable Freightliner FLB cabover, outfitted with a Hiab 858-10 crane. Maneuvering through tight spaces and navigating limited access points posed no challenge, thanks to the truck’s twin steer front axles.

The project’s complexity demanded innovative solutions. With limited site access and power line limits of approach restrictions, Can Ridge implemented a meticulous plan. Our truck shuttled all five tanks in from a nearby satellite storage location, carefully coordinating with power line spotters to ensure safety and compliance.

Executing each shuttle required precision and coordination, necessitating brief closures of adjacent streets at two-minute intervals. Despite the logistical hurdles, Can Ridge’s expertise ensured minimal disruption to the surrounding area.

As Vancouver continues to evolve, Can Ridge remains at the forefront, delivering exceptional solutions that shape the city’s landscape.
