Power Dynamics Innovations LLC, to Design and Manufacture Wicket Lifter Barge Winches and Winch Controls

Power Dynamics Innovations LLC has been awarded a contract by Conrad Shipyard, Morgan City, LA,

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.

The Olmsted Locks and Dam Project is the largest and most expensive inland water navigation installation ever built in the United States. More than ninety million tons of material are shipped through the locks annually. PDI, Power Dynamics Innovations LLC, will design and provide the Anchor Winches, Positioning Winches, Wicket Hoist Winch and Spud Winches along with Winch Control Stations and Winch Variable Frequency Drives.

Carl Liberty, PDI Managing Member says, “We are extremely thrilled that we have been selected as a supply partner to Conrad for this contract. Conrad’s founding principles of Quality, Craftsmanship, Integrity and Service have served them well over their rich 70-year history and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with them in the future.”

Liberty adds, “PDI has thirty years of providing successful, cost-effective custom designed equipment and fluid power solutions. We thank Conrad Shipyard for this opportunity to supply our Dynamic Power TM Winches and Controls.” Power Dynamics Innovations LLC is known as a leader in the industry, engineering custom winches, hydraulic power units and pipeline tensioning equipment.
