SPG and Hydro Mobile Selected by Canmec-CRT
for Customized Access Solution at Muskrat Falls

The Special Projects Group (SPG) and Hydro Mobile, 2 divisions of AGF Access Group, Inc., have been selected by Canmec-CRT – a joint-venture company between the Canmec Group and CRT Construction – to provide 9 custom-designed Hydro Mobile F-Series electrically-operated platforms, in addition to the 12 similar units purchased in 2014/2015 for the Muskrat Falls jobsite. The units will provide access to support the construction of the powerhouse upstream and downstream gate structures of the new $7.4 billion Muskrat Falls hydro generating project located on the Lower Churchill River in Labrador.

Canmec-CRT is involved in the construction activities of multiple parts of the facility including the concrete spillway, intake structures, trash rack, bulkhead and draft tubes. The new Hydro Mobile F-Series platforms have been custom-designed to be used for the construction activities. Special product features for the mast climbers included custom fixed and mobile extensions, custom bridges, semi-automatic greasing systems, oil heaters for extreme winter temperature conditions as well as safe zone detection to allow for safe access and work in confined areas.

According to the Muskrat Falls Project website, the North dam will be in excess of 400 m long with a maximum elevation of about 39.3 m, making it one of the largest roller compact concrete dams in Canada. Once in operation, the Muskrat Falls generating facility will be the second largest hydro plant in Atlantic Canada. This is the final major civil component required for the creation of the final Muskrat Falls reservoir.
