Cook Inlet, AK – In 2013, Pacific Pile & Marine expanded its heavy lift division in Cook Inlet, adding a 650-ton lifting capacity crane barge equipped with a 4600 Series 4 Crane to its fleet. In 2014, PPM began work to expand its heavy lift division even further. PPM was contracted to assist with the installation of a monopod platform in Cook Inlet; the first since the late 1990s. This project called for highly technical maneuvering and the construction of a 1700-ton capacity crane barge equipped with 8-point mooring system capable of operating in the often severe conditions of Cook Inlet.
