Power Dynamics Innovations LLC has been awarded a contract by Conrad Shipyard, Morgan City, LA, for the design and construction of Winches and Winch Controls for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers “Wicket Lifter Barge” which will be used to raise and lower steel dam wickets and perform maintenance functions at the Olmsted Locks and Dam on the Ohio River.
Conrad Shipyard was awarded the contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the construction of the barge. "Conrad Shipyard has a long history of building vessels for the Army Corps of Engineers," said President and CEO Johnny Conrad. "This award is a testament to the extraordinary level of quality and craftsmanship that Conrad consistently delivers." When raised, wickets block water and feed it to adjacent boat locks that safely harbor barges to a lower elevation when the river is low.
