It seems contradictory that equipment designed to freeze the ground should itself need to be protected from the very type of conditions it creates, but Moretrench’s ground freezing plants are just as vulnerable to prolonged exposure to harsh environmental conditions as any other piece of sophisticated machinery. With our ground freezing operation continuing to expand, bringing with it an accompanying increase in inventory, adequate storage has been a priority that was recently met by the purchase of a new facility in Hardyston, New Jersey, 30 minutes north of the Rockaway office.
When not in use on site, all of the company’s 50+ ft-long mobile freeze plants will be housed in the 12,000 SF warehouse/office location, together with instrumentation, spares, maintenance items, control panels, pumps, tanks and support equipment. Proper indoor storage will prolong the service life of this specialized equipment, facilitate any necessary maintenance, and enhance inventory control and project mobilization. John Hansen, Moretrench’s Ground Freezing Equipment Supervisor, will be overseeing the facility.
