Hydropower

REEL COH specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of powerhouse cranes.

With over 150 installations – powerhouse cranes, water intake, draft tube, spillway gates, gate hoists and gantry cranes as well as stop log rack and pinion gantry cranes – REEL COH has demonstrated its mastery of the complex requirements encountered in the hydropower industry.

Material handling equipment


REEL COH is dedicated in building excellent material handling equipment, but also assuming full responsability for its performance.

This has led us to performing both the engineering and manufacturing of all critical components used on our cranes.

Furthermore, REEL COH uses, unless specified otherwise, only components conforming to North-American codes

We have a unique expertise in all requirements and regulations of lifting equipment for hydropower as we have supplied the majority of lifting equipment for powerhouses in North America in extreme environments in the last 30 years.

The supply is diversified in new and old installations, but our expertise becomes evident in refurbishment and replacement at existing installations.
