NAVY SHIPYARD PHILADELPHIA : DESTROYER
NIBTORQUE was contacted on how to remove and retighten extremly large 5 3/8 hex nuts on the shaft of a Navy Destroyer.
This ship was to be sunk for an artificial reef.
When it was towed the propellor shaft was so large that it would create its own momentem if it was not stopped from turning freely.
NIBTORQUE examined the application and provided a extremly powerful tool capable of 25,000 ft lbs
ATLANTIC CITY WIND FARM
Kris the owner of NIBTORQUE was visiting a wind farm early on in his career while working for a competitor.
Kris Noticed the method of bolting together the Atlantic City Wind Farm was slow and not accurate.
With the knowledge of bolted connections, Kris provided tooling to complete the bolting job almost 10 times faster.
The contractor already had purchased tools from a competitor in New Jersey, instead the contractor let the competitors tools sit and collect dust because of the savings by using our tools. The contractor eventually purchased our brand of tooling for all new wind turbine construction at their main shop in Minneapolis.
