Swing Bridge Automation & Rehabilitation

Keeping Canada's historic swing and lift bridges in working order is a major task.  We specialize in refurbishment of the bridge hydraulic, mechanical & electronic systems.

Hastings Swing Bridge

This bridge was  replaced in the Spring 2016.  Eastern Fluid Power Inc decommissioned the existing Hydraulic and Electronic system and replace all components.  This includes the Power Unit, Cylinders, Tubing, Electronic Controls and Road Controls.  A very time sensitive project, the work must be decommissioned in January, installed in March and recommissioned by May, 2016.

We are pleased to say that the job was completed on budget and three weeks ahead of schedule.

Previous bridge work includes the automation of Kingston Mills Swing Bridge, (with General Contractor H.R. Doornekamp).
