The Major League Baseball Florida Marlins’ opening game held April 1 marks the beginning of their final season at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. And just outside Little Havana in downtown Miami, approximately 800 construction workers are busy manitowoc crane miamiconstructing Miami Ballpark, the Marlin’s new home. Recently, two of Ring Power Crane’s service technicians had a rare opportunity to join the construction crews at the renowned jobsite.

Steel erection specialists L.P.R. Construction Co., whose project history includes Coors Field, Memphis Arena and Miami Heat Stadium, was contracted to work the steel. The Loveland, Colo.-based company was using a Manitowoc 18000 to install the retractable roof on the new baseball stadium when the crane’s radio-controlled load cell unit malfunctioned, and L.P.R. called Ring Power Crane in Pompano to assist.

Ring Power Crane technician, Raul Urena, reported to the stadium jobsite to troubleshoot the problem and took the load cell back to the facility for inspection and repair. At the time, the crane was also due for routine 1000-hour service, so Crane FS Tech II Mauricio Brizuela returned to the site with Urena two days later. The crane technicians spent the next two days installing the load cell, changing the oils and filters, and inspecting the engine, drives, hydraulics and hoist assemblies.

Miami Ballpark will be the sixth Major League Baseball stadium to have a retractable roof, and the Ring Power Crane service technicians are proud to have played an important part in its construction.
