It's an annual Maine event for Team Cianbro; a 180 mile ride from the mountains near Sunday River to the seashore in Belfast, all to benefit the American Lung Association of Maine. The recent three-day event attracted the efforts of 19 Cianbro cyclists, and a half dozen support staff.

During the nation's infancy, Americans in the mid-Atlantic region took an idea put forth by George Washington and created the Chesapeake and Ohio canal… a 184 mile waterway running between Washington, D.C. and Cumberland, Maryland. The canal was an important transportation corridor for commerce in the 19th century. Today, the canal is a destination for hikers and bike riders who use the waterway's tow path for recreation. Unfortunately, a mile and a half chunk of the tow path has become impassable due to erosion over the generations. But Cianbro is preparing to restore the path and intends to have the job done by December of 2011.

While Cianbro team members have landed on the cover of Crane Hotline magazine for the company's new Manitowoc 16000 WA crane, components of the massive new crawler are arriving from the manufacturer's plant in Wisconsin. It'll take 34 tractor-trailer loads to get to Cianbro's shutdown project in Hinckley, Maine but the newest crane in the company's fleet is arriving piece by piece. That's the word from Cianbro Transportation Supervisor Nick Arena, who says the extra reach that the 16000 provides will come in handy at the shutdown.

Many innovations came out of the Motiva Project at Cianbro's Eastern Manufacturing Facility in Brewer, Maine including 3D work package techniques, high definition laser scanning applications, and a new safety idea called "Hazard Hunt Cards." The simple idea might have improved the quality of Cianbro's safety program onsite by two to three times during the final 12 months of the project, according to Senior Project Manager Dave Leavitt, who offers a discussion of the Hazard Hunt Card.

The Stena Forth deep sea drilling vessel, which has been undergoing maintenance repairs off the Maine coast since June 17, is scheduled to depart the area today to continue its global mission of oil exploration. Late last week, Cianbro finished installing the last of three new propulsion units on the vessel, known as thrusters. Over the weekend, Stena crew members performed diagnostics on the new thrusters. The crew completed sea trials 15 miles offshore this morning. Stena Drilling has told Cianbro Project Manager Brian Rancourt that the trials went well, and that Stena is very satisfied with the work that Mainers were able to perform on the vessel.The project took 12 days to complete, from start to finish, and the Stena Forth departs Maine slightly ahead of schedule.
