Unique Projects

Dalton Electric Company has a reputation of never shying away from uniquely complex projects. A few of our most notable projects are as follows:

a)      Provide and install all electrical cables and components on a new container vehicle for Lockheed Martin Corporation. This electrical system was developed using existing drawings and specifications provided by the owner. The successful completion of this project demonstrated Dalton Electric Company’s management capabilities in providing critical management, labor and equipment for Lockheed Martin on Space Programs. (2013)

b)      Refurbishment of SR 529 – East and West moveable “swing” bridges. Built in 1925 and 1956, these bridges were getting old and had begun deteriorating. Rather than replace them, WSDOT saw refurbishing as the best way to lengthen their life span and improve safety on the bridges. The bridges needed mechanical and electrical control upgrades, cleaning and painting, and seismic strengthening. Dalton Electric Company’s electrical contract exceeded $1.4 million. (2004)

c)      Terminal #91 Passenger Walkways. Dalton Electric Company teamed up with Jesse Engineering, Co., to provide the Port of Seattle with two mobile passenger boarding gangway systems for the new Smith Cove Cruise Terminal at Terminal 91. Dalton Electric Company designed and installed the electrical system and L2 Systems designed the controls for these moveable gangways. (2009)

d)     Angoon Ferry Transfer Span-The project consisted of removing an existing ferry terminal and construct a new one. Work includes furnishing and installing a new steel transfer bridge; a steel float system and associated pile restraints; fenders and intermediate ramp and apron systems; and six pile supported mooring and breasting dolphin structures. Dalton Electric Company provided, installed and tested all electrical for the Steel Transfer Bridge and Intermediate Ramp and Apron System in Washington. Once testing was complete everything was barged up to Alaska.  (2012)

e)      Simpson Lumber Company has been in the forest products business since 1890. Dalton Electric Company provided and installed electrical and controls at the log haul-out facility. This facility is used to transport logs from out of the adjacent waterway, up the ramp and into transport vehicles.
