Ledcor Group Tugboat Lift

Amix Heavy Lift recently lifted a new tugboat for the Ledcor Group with our Heavy Lift barge, the Arctic Tuk. The Tuk and the Ledcor Group barge were brought alongside each other at the Burrard pier, where we lifted one of their new 85-Ton tugboats from their barge into the water with complete ease and success.

Steel Reload

Amix Group has been busy transloading steel pipes and beams from ships’ barge decks onto highway trucks from our own private location. We have also been giving the option of storing the materials as well. By doing so, we have been helping mitigate congested docks, thus enabling the transfer process to speed up for many of our customers.

Boat Lifts Reflection

Since we’ve ventured into the Heavy Lifting business, we have done many types of boat lifts for various companies and individuals. These lifts have ranged from lighter lifts, only requiring our mobile cranes, to heavy ones, requiring our floating dock and Heavy Lifting Crane on the Arctic Tuk. Through our many lifts, we’ve found time and time again, that our lifting methods are faster and easier than alternate methods like using a dry-dock.

These lifts range for different purposes, some for salvage or demolition, or for refitting of the boats, or even just reloading them to another ship or into the water. We’ve found we’re extremely flexible in our lifting capabilities and boat types and shapes.

This is a small reflection and photo gallery of our past lifts.

Amix Group and our Power Lifting Reflection

Since Amix Group has been recently highlighted in Global Report’s latest Power magazine, for our investment in our heavy-lift ringer-crane, we wanted to reflect on how our investment has allowed our company to directly help the power industry within British Columbia.

The purchase of our Arctic Tuk has enabled us to efficiently and effectively move heavy equipment, including transmission cable spools, and generation turbines of up to 380 mt. Although we have substantial savings in our costs, the Arctic Tuk allows us to continue our strive in keeping the environment clean by decreasing the needed amount of machines and cutting time at each project.

Here’s a look-back on past work that Amix has assisted the Power industry in British Columbia:

Rewind: Heavy Lift Neptune Hoppers

As Amix is playing a heavy hand in the expansion of Richardson’s grain silos, we wanted to highlight one of our other past contributions to another of North Vancouver’s Low Level Road’s expansions.

Last year, Neptune Terminals completed an expansion of its potash-handling facility, which increased their coal-handling capacity from 8 million tonnes to 12.5 million.

For this construction, we lifted, transported and positioned their large hoppers at their terminal. We used our Heavy Lift crane and barge, the Arctic Tuk, to carry three hoppers at a time to the site.

Heavy Lift North Vancouver Silo Project

Amix Heavy Lift has been onsite in North Vancouver’s Low Level Road to assist in the $120-million expansion to Richardson International’s grain-handling terminal.

The proposition began 2 years ago, as the company’s silos were running at full capacity and in desperate need of expansion. The proposal proceeded, due to the worldwide shortages of grain and Canadians’ increasing demand.
