Sugar Hollow Trout Park & Hatchery

(www.sugarhollowtrout.com)

In spring 2011, Leonard Crawford Electric installed the first HydroWatch Enterprise Level SCADA System at the Sugar Hollow Trout Park & Hatchery in Tunkhannock PA. This system has gone on to be highlighted in both the Chief Oil & Gas Newsletter and the Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre, PA). In July 2011, this same system was nominated for the Innovation of the Year Award by the Marcellus Shale Coalition with the award to be presented by Governor Tom Corbett at the Shale Gas Insight show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.

"Len and his team were instrumental in bringing everything together for us. From the displays to the integrative controls, the system operates exactly as how we hoped and beyond."

"Len and I have joined teams many times over the past 5 years on various projects where cookie cutter processes could not be used. He has demonstrated an out of the box thinking approach to fine tune and resolve many safety and process control upgrades at my plant. He has interfaced the new with the old and at the end of the day had great results doing so. Len has always gone the extra mile to resolve any open issues and to ensure the system operates properly. I fully believe I am leaving projects in good hands when I contract him and I would recommend him greatly to others looking for the same results."

The image to the left is of a Pilger Mill that was modified as a safety initiative that added safety equipment and safety monitoring systems to ensure operator and maintenance personnel protection from moving equipment. These safety scanners were integrated into the existing Category 3 Safety system along with the process data being incorporated into the machine Profibus network. Once the project was completed, users could be assured that once a safety boundary was broken, the machine was incapable of being restarted until the safety boundary was re-established and a manual restart procedure was completed.

"Our most productive machines have complex automation controls. When a failure occurs I call in Len and his team. They respond immediately to isolate the problem. Len's extensive contacts have been instrumental in securing special components and their expertise has been invaluable in quickly returning our machines to full production."

Support at Wirerope Works includes machine installations, automation support, and drive installation for new and machine upgrades. The images to the left are of a wire buncher that was experiencing network disconnections during drive enabling.
