Cianbro Irby Central Loop Reaches Two Significant Milestones

Successful Completion of Section 60
A significant milestone was reached January 27th in the town of Farmingdale, Maine as Cianbro Irby crews placed the final jumpers on the Bowman’s Street and Brown’s Crossing Substations. This 1.5 mile stretch of transmission line between the two substations was reenergized, completing Section 60. On December 11, 2011, 11½ miles of Section 60, stretching through the towns of Windsor, Whitefield, and Chelsea, were energized after eight months of continuous work. Crews spotted, framed, set, strung wire and clipped-in 160 structures. The scope included modifications on Section 19 and Section 263D1 at the Kennebec River crossing.
250,000 Safe Hours without a Recordable
The Cianbro-Irby Joint Venture has worked for nearly a full calendar year now on the MPRP Central Loop Project for Central Maine Power. This week marks the accomplishment of a few major safety milestones on the project.
As of Monday, January 23rd, the project has worked over 250,000 consecutive hours without a recordable injury. In the 300,000+ hours worked on the project since its start, the team has had only one recordable injury. The project continues to maintain a recordable injury rate below 1.0, as it has done since mid-October 2011.
The Cianbro-Irby project team continues to celebrate and communicate its successes with the entire team, without losing focus on maximizing the Lessons Learned process, CAPP and other tools that have helped make the project successful.
In 2012, the project will focus on eliminating exposures and making safety a personal commitment to help ensure continued success.
