The huge gantry crane erected by contractor Barnhart Crane and Rigging was complete and put to work Wednesday in downtown Tupelo. The heavy-lift machine is loading electric generating equipment from the former Enron power plant in eastern Union County onto flat rail cars for shipment to Texas. The tan building at right center of photo is the New Albany city hall.
For more information on the removal of the Enron plant that never was, see our recent news story: “Equipment Being Removed from Enron’s Never Completed Plant in Union County.”
