May Post Meeting

May 13th, 2021

Join us in person Thursday May 13th for the joint May Post meeting with the ASCE Quad Cities Chapter!

Rock Island District’s Mississippi River Project staff will provide a technical tour of the new Quad Cities Heavy Lift Crane and crane barge. This $30 million platform was designed by the Corps of Engineers’ Marine Design Center and built by Conrad Shipyard in Louisiana. Its main hook is capable of lifting more than 1 million pounds, and it can handle even the heaviest gates on any Lock & Dam Project within the entire Mississippi Valley. The tour will include visits to the crane’s gantry platform, engine/generator room, control room, and also below deck to explore the fuel, water, spud, and ballast systems.  

The tour will begin at 11:30 am we recommend everyone to be at River Heritage Park in Davenport at 11:15.

Face coverings are suggested as tour will include instances where social distancing may not be accomplished. Due to the impact of COVID-19, and to ensure the safety of attendants, SAME Rock Island Post and ASCE Quad Cities Chapter will comply with the federal, state and USACE recommendations for masks, social distancing and any other safety related practices at the time of this event.
