Axis Crane  Back to installing power line towers

Back to installing power line support towers across Alsea Bay

Waldport area resident Michael Rivers caught this cell phone photo of Axis Crane back to work installing new power line support towers across Alsea Bay. The towers keep Central Lincoln PUD’s main south county power lines high in the air so low flying brown pelicans, sea gulls, blue herons and an occasional bald eagle don’t suffer brushes with hundreds of thousands of volts.

Last week an Axis Crane operator suddenly found himself on the wrong end of a cantankerous support tower that witnesses say snagged one of the power lines. As the crane operator tried to free it, witnesses say the motion caused the crane’s latticed lifting-tower to buckle allowing the support towers to fall back into the bay, with a part of the crane with it. There were no injuries.
