Weighing over 45,000 lbs. with a slim margin of error of only 3/4â€� in radial clearance, watch the Smith Services team use a custom 20â€™ long steel tube with a 1â€� wall thickness, weighing approximately 3,300 lbs. and two 50 ton cranes to float a 20â€™ rotor from a massive 32MW, 127,000 lbs. generator brought into the shop for inspection and repair.
