Copper Mountain’s Solar Secret Revealed By Lori Lovely CEG CORRESPONDENT

In 2010 Sempra Generation, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, built a 58 MW solar plant in Boulder City, Nev., a 450-acre desert site about 40 mi. (63.4 km) southeast of Las Vegas, completing the project in less than a year at a cost of $141 million. Under the direction of First Solar, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor, approximately 350 temporary construction workers installed nearly 775,000 solar panels at the Copper Mountain Facility. The panels convert sunlight into enough renewable electricity to power more than 17,000 average homes annually. That power, along with power from Sempra’s nearby 10 MW El Dorado Solar plant, is sold to Pacific Gas & Electric under separate

ELFA Q4 Update U.S. Department of Labor Predicts Modest Publishes New Hiring Rules Improvement On Sept. 24, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs published two new rules in the Federal Register, requiring contractors and subcontractors on federal construction projects to take steps to improve hiring of veterans and individuals with disabilities. Both rules will take effect on March 14, 2014. One rule updates the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act, which prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment against protected veterans, and requires these employers to take affirmative action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain

these veterans. VEVRAA protects disabled veterans, recently separated veterans, active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans, and Armed Forces service medal veterans. The VEVRAA rule requires contractors and subcontractors to: • Use one of two methods to establish annual hiring benchmarks for protected veterans. • Maintain records related to their benchmark for three years, allowing them to assess success of their outreach and recruitment for veterans over time. • Invite applicants to self-identify as a protected veteran prior to making a job see RULES page 12

Investment in equipment and software is expected to grow 3.3 percent in 2013, according to the Q4 update to the 2013 Equipment Leasing & Finance U.S. Economic Outlook released Oct. 8 by the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation. Equipment and software investment slowed in the second quarter, but the report predicts modest improvement in the second half of the year, depending on the outcome of the current fiscal policy debates. Growth is expected to be mixed, with some sectors outperforming others. The report, which is focused on the $725 billion equipment leasing and finance industry, forecasts equipment investment and capital spending in the United States and evalusee ELFA page 54

Deere Aviation Team Flies Okla. Dealer Home to Aid in Tornado Cleanup Being acutely aware of the weather is just one part of the John Deere Corporate Aviation team’s job, according to the company. But on May 20, 2013, Mother Nature threw a curveball, bringing the aviation team, C&F employees, a dealer and a customer together. On that day, CL Boyd’s, Oklahoma’s John Deere dealer, Steve Decker, vice president of marketing, and John Willis, equipment advisor, were on their way to meetings at the Deere & Company World Headquarters in Moline, Ill. Also with them were Silver Star Construction’s Steve Shawn, president, and Louis Cossey, equipment manager. Silver Star Construction provides construction services to developments and roads and is located in the nearby suburb of Moore. The group arrived in Chicago in the afternoon to make their final connection to Moline. “We were at O’Hare making the connection to Moline when we first learned of the weather threat back home,” said Decker. “We started watching the live news feed on our phones, and as our flight started to taxi for takeoff, we saw the funnel drop.” A few minutes later, the feed was lost. The short flight from Chicago to Moline seemed endless and when the group finally landed at the Quad City International Airport and cell-phone service was restored, they discovered the city of Moore had taken a direct hit. Instantly, the men knew they had to return to Oklahoma. After exploring their options, they decided they could rent a car and either make the 700-mi. trip home or drive back to Chicago and attempt a flight home the following morning. “Neither were good options given the urgency of the situation,” said Decker. “So I decided to call Deere to see if they could help.” Decker’s first call was to Mark Germain, director of customer and product support. Germain called Domenic Ruccolo, senior vice president, worldwide C&F sales and marketing, who secured the approval to use a company plane. The Deere aviation team quickly made preparations for take-off. “We’re forever grateful to Mark, Domenic, Sam Allen (Deere &

During a visit to the city of Moore in late July, the city representatives and Steve Shawn presented a plaque to Domenic Ruccolo; Mike Mack, president, Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division; and others from the C&F Division for John Deere’s assistance during the aftermath of the May 20 tornado.

Company chairman and CEO), pilots Jeremy Scales and Ben Forest, and the entire John Deere Corporate Aviation team for getting us back home so quickly,” said Decker. “What they did for us matters to more people than they’ll ever know.” Shawn added, “This sort of commitment is what sets Deere apart from its competitors.” Ninety minutes after taking off from Moline, the group was flying into Oklahoma. As they descended, the sight was unimaginable. “We saw the tornado’s path and the size of the area that had been hit,” said Decker. “We saw what seemed like an endless line of emergency lights and miles of traffic gridlock in every direction. We saw empty lots where homes and businesses used to stand. It was a scene none of us will ever forget.” CL Boyd and Silver Star Construction employees living in the area were safe. Silver Star’s office was also safe. However, the tornado killed 24 people, including seven students from Plaza Towers Elementary School. During the following days, crews from Silver Star began working to clear the roads of debris so emergency responders could navigate their way through the area. It was estimated that 150,000 total tons (136,077 t) of debris needed to be removed. A number of

Deere machines were involved with the cleanup effort. Silver Star’s three four-wheel-drive loaders and a backhoe were instrumental in clearing the streets in those crucial first days after the tragedy. Smaller commercial worksite product equipment was used to push debris to the curb, and excavators were also in demand. During a visit to Moore in late July, city of Moore representatives and Shawn presented a plaque to Ruccolo; Mike Mack, president, Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division; and others from the C&F Division for John Deere’s assistance during the aftermath of the May 20th tornado. The plaque also has a fire fighter’s helmet, which is signed by the Moore first responders. “It was an honor, but also extremely humbling to receive such a touching recognition, especially one signed by the true heroes of that tragic event, ” said Ruccolo. Upon returning to Moline, Ruccolo decided that the plaque should be kept by the John Deere Aviation team to recognize their efforts and assistance. “Larrie Dahl and the entire Aviation team did an incredible job in returning our customers home that day so quickly,” said Ruccolo.

and NAPA will stand by the senator as she works to address the historic shortfall in revenues the Highway Trust Fund faces in fiscal year 2015.” According to the Congressional Budget Office, the Highway Trust Fund lacks sufficient funds to meet its obligations, which has resulted in steadily accumulating shortfalls. Under current projections, no federal funds will be available for state infrastructure or transportation projects in fiscal year 2015. Boxer has noted that this would jeopardize almost 3 million jobs nationwide. The award was presented to Boxer during NAPA’s Asphalt Fly-In, which brought asphalt producers, paving contractors and road builders to Capitol Hill to discuss infrastructure funding with their members of Congress, as well as to educate them about sustainability efforts by the asphalt pavement industry that preserve natural resources and save taxpayers money. For example, the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement and recycled asphalt shingles in 2011 eliminated the need for more than 21 million barrels of asphalt cement, saving taxpayers some $2.2 billion.

History Swings in Southeast Texas Bridge’s Favor By Jose D. Enriquez III BEAUMONT ENTERPRISE

BRIDGE CITY, Texas (AP) It was a bridge, only one of two like it in Texas, slated to be demolished and replaced. Concerned Orange County residents like Mark Dunn formed a committee — the Bridge City Citizens for Historic Preservation — to help fight for the preservation of Cow Bayou Bridge, which was said to be ahead of its time when completed 72 years ago. The bridge has been designated as a historical place with the Texas Historical Commission and also has found its place in the National Register of Historic Places. Most recently, the Texas Transportation Commission allotted $9.5 million for an overhaul to bring the bridge back to complete working order. “The technology of the bridge back in its day was like a marvel,’’ he told the Beaumont Enterprise. “Only two bridges like it remain in Texas.’’ The other bridge also is in

southeast Texas, in Deweyville, but it has to be manually cranked to open. The Cow Bayou bridge operates with a motor. Dunn said Cow Bayou Bridge is where Bridge City originally got its name. “The city grew up around that area of the bridge,’’ he said. To Dunn, however, the bridge is more than just history. It’s a memory. He said in a September 2009 Enterprise article that, as a child, he “loved to watch the Cow Bayou Swing Bridge on Texas 87 open as a small tugboat, sometimes pulling a barge of shell, passed.’’ “I remember we were always excited to see the bridge open,’’ he said in 2009. Dunn didn’t like the idea of losing the landmark. The group received support from preservation societies like the Historic Bridge Foundation. It offered to the committee to be a consulting party of the Section 106 process, which requires “federal agencies to take into account the

“It’s a historic bridge, so it was important that this be a restoration project instead of a rebuild.’’ Tucker Ferguson Beaumont District of Texas Dept. of Transportation

effects of undertakings on historic properties.’’ Dunn said a huge help came from the foundation, specifically the foundation’s executive director Kitty Henderson, who he said helped emphasize the importance of its historical status to the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge stretches alongside Texas 87 and rests on a concrete pier. It pivots 90 degrees to allow watercraft to pass on either side. “This project has been in the planning stages for some time now,’’ said Tucker Ferguson, district engineer of the Beaumont

District of Texas Department of Transportation. “It’s a historic bridge, so it was important that this be a restoration project instead of a rebuild.’’ The last time it was operated as a swing bridge was in 2003. The renovations, which will begin at the end of the year, are expected to be completed by 2015. According to an application to the National Register of Historic Places, the bridge qualified for designation under the engineering significance: “Property embodies the distinctive characteristics of a type, period or method of construction or represents the work of a master,

or possesses high artistic values, or represents a significant and distinguishable entity whose components lack individual distinction.’’ The bridge was modeled after the Deweyville Bridge, now the “Texas 12 Sabine River Bridge.’’ The Bridge City Citizens for Historic Preservation has disbanded since the bridge’s addition to the historic places list. Dunn said all they wanted to do was educate the public. “A lot of people didn’t really have any idea what the significance of the bridge was,’’ he said of Cow Bayou Bridge. “Both of our bridges are namesake bridges with the historical registry.’’ The bridge will be remodeled and renovated down to the last button in the wheelhouse. Dunn said the bridge will look like it did when it was completed in 1941 despite minor damage it received in Hurricane Ike.

Cat D7E Track-Type Tractors Deliver Power, Efficiency Republic Services has discovered a more efficient way to process 3,200 tons (2,903 t) of waste delivered daily on average to the Sycamore Landfill in Santee, Calif. A pair of Cat D7E track-type tractors push municipal solid waste at the tipping face, move soil for daily cover, and help maintain the 491-acre site. “The machines are being utilized 100 percent of the time,” said Gabe Gonzales, operations manager. “The machines keep the material moving, and there’s no loss in power because they are electronic.” The D7E’s unique diesel-electric powertrain burns considerably less fuel than traditional systems. The electric generator, power inverter, and propulsion module in the electric drive system replace traditional mechanical components to improve power and efficiency. “Based on the fuel economy and torque of the machine, we’re able to process the same amount of material at a lower cost,” said Gonzales. “Our operators use direct drive at all times.” To keep pace with 23-ton (21 t) truckloads of material, the landfill uses both of the D7Es to spread municipal solid waste at the tipping face during the hours of peak activity. The flexibility of having two machines for peak hours and separating them at other times has proven to be very beneficial in meeting a variety of dozing requirements throughout the day. Each D7E burns 6.6 gal. (25 L) of fuel per hour compared to 13 gal. (49 L) per hour for the larger track-type tractor they replaced. The ability to perform different dozing tasks in different locations has actually increased productivity and overall efficiency. Operators are easily able to handle the peak hours each day, and keep pace with waste flow at other times using only one machine. When not working at the tipping face, the D7Es place the daily cover, and provide maintenance throughout the site.

Another benefit of the electric drive motor, the D7E meets Tier IV Interim emission standards. This helps the landfill reduce its carbon footprint. Operator Favorites The new machines — one of which was purchased in 2012 and the other earlier this year — are quickly becoming operator favorites. They especially like the ergonomics of the cab and controls, quiet operation, and ability to set the hydraulic feed to their own specifications. “The user screen is very friendly,” Gonzales said. “Overall, it’s an easy machine to operate.” To help the machines with the heavy workload at the landfill, Hawthorne CAT installed a specialized guarding for the undercarriage and windows. A 3-ft. (.9 m) high screen was added to prevent waste from spilling over the blade.

“Based on the fuel economy and torque of the machine, we’re able to process the same amount of material at a lower cost. Our operators use direct drive at all times.” Gabe Gonzales Republic Services

Hawthorne CAT employees also helped landfill staff become acquainted with the new machines through walk-arounds and reviewing the D7E’s new technologies and performance features. The professionals at Hawthorne CAT are available to answer questions about the D7Es or any of the other Cat machines in the fleet. “They’re a phone call away,” said Gonzales. It all adds up to increased efficiency at the landfill, and an improved bottom line for Republic Services, according to the company.

Port of Long Beach Constructs New Iconic Landmark By Lori Lovely CEG CORRESPONDENT

In 2016 the city of Long Beach, Calif., will have a new iconic landmark in its harbor. The project to replace the aging Gerald Desmond Bridge is a joint effort of Caltrans and the Port of Long Beach, with funding contributed by the Port of Long Beach, the California Department of Transportation, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Los Angeles County Department of Transportation. In addition to altering the skyline, the new six-lane bridge with taller clearance is expected to dramatically improve this important commuter and trucking corridor and enhance Southern California’s vital link to international trade markets. Designated a National Highway System Intermodal Connector Route and part of the Federal Strategic Highway Network, the Gerald Desmond Bridge is a critical structure serving the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, the city of Long Beach, Los Angeles and Orange counties and the nation. Considered one of the nation’s most vital pieces of infrastructure, it sees 15 percent of all U.S. shipborne cargo travels over it to nearly two-thirds of the country. But as those cargo ships grow, the aging bridge is

incapable of handling their increased dimensions. When the Gerald Desmond Bridge opened in 1968, cargo ships were about one-sixth the size of today’s ships. “They used to carry 8,000 container units,” said John Pope, community relations manager of the Port of Long Beach and project spokesman. Now they carry 14,000 containers — the largest container vessels to visit North American ports — and even bigger vessels are under construction: the newest can carry 18,000 container units. “It’s a tight fit.” It’s more than tight. While some ships have to come in at low tide, others don’t fit at all. The north inner harbor is off limits to the biggest ships, Pope indicates. At 155 ft. (47 m), the existing bridge prevents some of the larger cargo ships from

reaching piers within the inner channels. Because Long Beach is one of the world’s busiest seaports and continues to enjoy steady growth in cargo volumes, this limited access is becoming problematic. The existing bridge is one of the lowest in a major port on the west coast. Its replacement will raise the clearance over the Port’s inner harbor channel 50 ft. (15 m), which will allow the new generation of larger, more efficient cargo ships to pass. At 205 ft. (62.5 m), the

new Gerald Desmond Bridge will be the tallest cable-stayed bridge in the United States. In addition to gaining height, the new bridge will also add girth with the addition of one lane in each direction to serve the current volume of 68,000 vehicles per day (18 million trips per year) and to accommodate projected traffic increases. Four new emergency lanes will alleviate backups due to accidents and breakdowns, adding a measure of safety for commuters. Another reason behind the project is the cost of maintenance for the bridge that is reaching the end of its lifespan. see BRIDGE page 34

Sleek, Modern Look of Bridge Will Add Unusual Silhouette BRIDGE from page 33

Landmark Project There are approximately 43 cable-stayed bridges in the United States, but this will be California’s first cable-stayed bridge for traffic. It also will be the second tallest cable-stayed bridge in the country, featuring cable towers reaching 515 ft. (157 m) above the Long Beach skyline, and will have the highest clearance of any cablestayed bridge. The cable-stayed design is popular in Europe and Asia because of its efficient, cost-effective design and relatively lower construction costs. “With a predictable design, you get solid cost estimates because there are fewer variables in construction,” Pope said. Despite the fact that “West coast infrastructure isn’t as old,” Pope said, the sleek, modern look of the new bridge will add an unusual silhouette. “There’s been a lot of buzz in Long Beach. People recognize that it will alter the landscape of the city. It’s expected to become a key landmark.” It’s also expected to last. “We’re thinking of this as a 100-year bridge,” Pope said, explaining that typically, ships get wider, not taller, so the 200-ft. (61 m) clearance should be able to accommodate future ship designs. The project is unique in other ways, as well. It will be one of the most seismically advanced structures in the country. Because Southern California is home to active earthquake faults, the bridge is being designed with the latest knowledge and techniques. A cable-stayed bridge is a flexible structure by design. This bridge will have various components such as sheer links that will act as “fuses” to take the brunt of an earthquake’s energy, breaking to protect the overall integrity of the structure. The bridge will be built in sections, connected by hinges that will move in a quake. Pre-Construction Of the $1.1 billion budget, approximately $650 million is for actual bridge construction. Other budget items include the demolition of the bridge and pre-construction activity that involved utility relocation and moving dozens of old and active oil wells in the path

of the new bridge. Before any work could commence, active oil wells had to be capped and moved. The Port sits on the third-largest oil field in the country, so it was the Port’s responsibility to have the Right of Way cleared of utility lines and old oil wells. Some inactive wells had to be “re-abandoned” because they were capped to old standards. Locating vertical wells to depths of 240 ft. (73 m) amidst horizontally intersecting utility lines was a challenge, Pope said. Another challenge is to not disrupt operations in one of the busiest ports in the world. Truck traffic moving cargo in and out of multiple piers/berths must not be impeded. “I have attended several traffic management meetings,” Pope said, adding that their number one priority is terminal access, but that has been complicated by having four active projects in the same zone. “There are a lot of moving pieces; juggling is difficult.” He said they haven’t had this many projects come together at once. Development in the Port was on hold for 10 years, but a recent focus on green port policy has to projects now. “It’s a new era of development.” Up to $4.5 billion is expected to be spent on projects over the next 10 years, aimed at improving and modernizing Port facilities. The bridge and middle harbor are the two biggest projects, at a cost of $2 billion.

It’s an exciting time, but there are growing pains, Pope said. Doing projects in the middle of a working port is a big challenge. “Long Beach is a major hub for international business. Truck and train routes can’t be shut for a long stretch of time, so the work has to be staged.” In some cases, temporary alternate routes are being constructed. The Port, the contractor and the Port tenants are working together on timing to plan for the biggest potential disruptions during the non-peak traffic times and to build temporary roads and ramps to keep traffic flowing. In July, demolition of an overpass blocking the footprint of the new bridge began. This required weekend closure, Pope said. To date, the project has had only that one major closure and has avoided major backups. “We will use that

In addition to gaining height, the new bridge also will add girth with the addition of one lane in each direction to serve the current volume of 68,000 vehicles per day (18 million trips per year) and to accommodate projected traffic increases.

[closure] as a model.” He anticipates traffic issues in one year when construction reaches the intersection of Ocean Blvd. and Pico. “A lot of connectors need to be redone.” Pre-construction is done and, as of late September, crews were testing for approximately 300 foundation piles. The 8,000-ft.-long (2,438 m) bridge is being constructed next to the existing bridge, which will remain in use for drivers and will be demolished when the new bridge is completed. Another unique aspect — at least for California — is the movable scaffolding systems. These systems replace the traditional “false work” (wood and steel support systems that rise from the ground to help frame an elevated roadway) when building bridge columns and road decks.

Project Benefits: • Three lanes in each direction for improved traffic flow • Emergency lanes on both sides to reduce traffic delays and safety hazards from accidents and vehicle breakdowns • A 205-ft. (62.5 m) vertical clearance to accommodate the world’s largest, “greener” vessels • A reduction in the bridge’s steep grades, for further improvements to traffic flow • The Mark Bixby Memorial Bicycle Pedestrian Path with scenic overlooks • Additional improvements include reconstruction of the Terminal Island East Interchange and the I-710/Gerald Desmond Bridge Interchange

Suspended in the air atop the bridge columns, the MSS will confine the framing and construction of the bridge deck to increase safety and improve construction efficiencies. Joint venture SFI — made up of Shimmick Construction Co. Inc., FCC Construction S.A. and Impregilo S.p.A. — is general contractor, overseeing more than 300 key construction workers directly on the bridge and 2 to 3 times as many subs and supporting workers once work gets into full swing in 2014. The bridge will feature more than 70 support columns and 40 cables for each tower. Each cable consists of 30 to 80 strands, depending on the location. Each strand is approximately 0.6 inches in diameter. If each strand was laid end to end, the length of all strands would reach 1.7 million ft. (519,768 m). The longest cable is approximately 573 ft. (175 m). Laid end to end, the total length of all cables would be approximately 15,000 ft. (4,572 m). The entire cable system weighs approximately 1.2 million lbs. (544,310 kg). Materials required include approximately 17.5 million lbs. (7.9 million kg) of structural steel, 72 million lbs. (32.7 million) of rebar, 182,000 cu. yds. (139,149 cu m) of concrete.

ConExpo 1993 More Than 96,000 Attend ConExpo ’93 in Vegas

This ConExpo article was published in Construction Equipment Guide (CEG) on April 7, 1993. This and other ConExpo articles to follow will be part of a continuing series that take a look back at ConExpos past through the reporting of CEG. We hope you enjoy these retros as much as we did searching for them deep in our archives. In spite of a down economy and a 50 percent decline in earthmoving machinery sales since 1989, ConExpo ’93 hosted more than 96,000 construction professionals from around the world, the third largest attendance in its 84-year history, according to preliminary figures provided by Exposition Manager Dennis Slater. Held March 20 to 25 in Las Vegas, the exposition had 800 exhibitors and occupied 960,000 net square feet of exhibit space, indoors and outside — the largest exhibitor count and display area in its history. At the last ConExpo, held in 1987 in Las Vegas, 308 companies used 908,000 net square feet of exhibit display space. ConExpo ’93 also made history by hosting a record 25 foreign delegations organized by the foreign service nationals in U.S. embassies and consulates abroad. Approximately 800 delegates attended the show as part of the Foreign Buyer Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce. These totals surpassed any other

Las Vegas, Nevada industry show of any type since the inception of the program. Non-U.S. attendance is estimated to represent between 20 and 25 percent of the total attendance, according to Len Heimowitz, U.S. Dept. of Commerce, International Trade Administration ConExpo liaison. Included were 140 attendees who were at ConExpo under a United States Trade and Development Agency grant. ConExpo was held in conjunction with the Associated General Contractors of America’s annual CONSTRUCTOR exposition, which added another 150 exhibitors occupying an additional 150,000 net square feet of exhibit space. This brought the combined total of the event to 950 exhibitors and 1,110,000 net square feet of exhibit space, making it the biggest construction equipment exposition in the world in 1993. ConExpo is sponsored and produced by the Construction Industry Manufacturers Association (CIMA). ConExpo has historically been held every six years since 1957. The CIMA board of directors has appointed a committee to study the feasibility of changing the cycle to a shorter time frame. The committee will submit its recommendations regarding the cycle and location of the next ConExpo to the board for consideration at its next meeting in April. Opening Day Ceremonies participants included Gary Godbersen, ConExpo ’93 general chairman; John Panettiere, 1993 chairman, Construction Industry Manufacturers Association (CIMA); Fred J. Broad, CIMA president and secretary; Robins Jackson, president, Associated General Contractors; Hubert Beatty, executive vice president, Associated General Contractors; Paul Christensen, chairman, Las Vegas Convention & Visitor’s Authority. ConExpo is sponsored and produced by CIMA, the international trade group representing construction equipment manufacturers and construction-services providers. Who Ran the ConExpo Show When ConExpo ’93 opened its doors on March 20, the crowds that swarmed into the Las Vegas Convention Center surpassed even the most grandiose expectations. In one of America’s largest buildings, it was almost elbow-

to-elbow with enthusiastic contractors, material producers, equipment dealers and manufacturers. The staffs at nearly every exhibit area were pressed throughout the day giving out literature, answering questions and, in general, just doing the job of being an exhibitor at ConExpo. ConExpo ’93 is one of the largest private industry trade shows in the world. It is produced and sponsored by the Construction Industry Manufacturers Association (CIMA) and continued through March 25 in Las Vegas, Nev. “The willingness to search for new approaches to old problems,” said ConExpo General Chairman Gary Godbersen, “has brought the construction industry to its present position. Without that willingness we would still be crossing rivers by ferry boat or working in iron-raftered buildings only a few stories tall.” That search for new construction ways and means focused on ConExpo this year. This exposition originated in 1909 in Columbus, Ohio, as the “Road Show” with 40 exhibitors using 40,000 square feet of display space. About 1,000 persons came to that first exposition. Enhancing ConExpo’s worldwide stature were national exhibits by construction equipment associations from Great Britain and Italy, plus company exhibits from Germany, Austria, Japan, Korea, France, Australia, Finland, Norway and others. “We anticipate that final figures will show some 100,000 construction-oriented people attended ConExpo ’93,” said Dennis Slater, ConExpo exposition manager, “and a large percentage of these came from outside the United States.” A comprehensive series of educational seminars helped make ConExpo ’93 a complete learning experience. The 36 ConExpo sessions dealt with topics of particular interest to worldwide construction professionals and included see CONEXPO page 40

six sessions on road-related subjects sponsored by the International Road Federation. Also, the Transportation Research Board presented four sessions to share innovations emerging from its five-year Strategic Highway Research Program. In addition, the U.S. Small Business Administration presented three educational sessions on export-related topics. CIMA 1993 Chairman John Panettiere pointed out: “ConExpo’s educational aspects with the unique opportunity afforded to attendees so that they could interface with the engineers and designers of machinery being viewed and considered for their operations, and to make direct comparisons between various equipment.” Concluded Godbersen: “Besides equipment and technology, ConExpo ’93 could be the economic launching pad for the construction industry. What attendees saw and heard at the Show will give them business direction for the remainder of the decade and beyond.” CIMA and AGC combined major industry events in 1993, providing construction influential people an unparalleled

opportunity to view the equipment and technology that can enhance their productivity and professionalism through the ’90s. AGC’s annual convention with its CONSTRUCTOR Exposition ran concurrently with CIMA’s ConExpo ’93 International Construction Equipment Exposition in Las Vegas. The AGC convention was held in the Las Vegas Hilton, Sahara and Riviera hotels, March 17 through 23 with indoor and outside exhibits at the Hilton. ConExpo ’93 was held next door in the new Las Vegas Convention Center, March 20 through 25. In addition

to sharing common show sites, both shows shared common show dates in adjoining outdoor and demonstration space. “The benefits of combining these two major events were many,” commented AGC President Robins H. Jackson, chairman of Cedar Valley Corp., Waterloo, Iowa. “The scope of exhibits provided contractors of all sizes with a comprehensive view of vital equipment for all their operations,” Jackson added. “In addition,” stated CIMA’s 1993 Chairman John M. Panettiere, president of Blount Inc., Forestry Division, Montgomery, Ala., “combining our forces produced an event with a total of 950 exhibitors using 1,108,000 net square feet of space-making this the biggest construction event in the world in 1993.” “Besides the thousands of contractors who came for the events,” pointed out Gary Godbersen, ConExpo general chairman and president of GOMACO Corp., Ida Grove, Iowa, “a large representation of federal, state, county and city/town public works officials were on hand, creating a unique forum between the public and private sectors.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Atlas Copco Implements New Visual Identity for Equipment Atlas Copco will align the visual identity of Dynapac rollers and pavers to be consistent with Atlas Copco branded equipment. The new identity launched in April 2013 at Bauma in Munich. The Dynapac name will continue to be prominently featured along with the Atlas Copco nomenclature. The color scheme will now be yellow and grey, matching all Atlas Copco’s product lines, which include construction tools, portable compressors and generators, and mining and drilling equipment. Numeric model designations will not change within the new identity, but will be used together with the Dynapac name — Atlas Copco Dynapac F1000W, Atlas Copco Dynapac CA2500, Atlas Copco Dynapac CC624, etc. Shawn Cheney, vice president of Atlas Copco Road Construction Equipment USA, said, “The change supports Atlas Copco Construction Technique’s overall goal to be the world leader in road construction equipment. Presenting a

consistently uniform identity to the global market fundamentally supports this goal.” The visual change also will strengthen Dynapac, Cheney said. “First of all the Dynapac name is dominantly visible in the product designation. It shows we are combining the strengths of Atlas Copco with the technological advantages of Dynapac. Second, we are clearly highlighting the ben-

efits of full integration with Atlas Copco, bringing the process and logistic advantages that such a strong group can offer.” Cheney noted that although Dynapac has been part of Atlas Copco since 2007, few end

users knew Atlas Copco was behind new products developed specifically for the North American market and the upgrades within its distribution network. “The most important aspect of this new look is the message it sends to customers — that Atlas Copco is determined to continue Dynapac's rapid growth in the U.S. and make investments accordingly,” Cheney said. “The change in visual identity is a statement of commitment, a statement of accountability." Existing Dynapac dealers will be identified as Atlas Copco Road Construction Equipment dealers, Cheney said. The visual identity transitional period will differ from product to product and depend on new product introductions, but full integration should be complete by 2014.

The GW750 handles the toughest HMA mixes with ease, getting balanced high densities from the top through the bottom of the mat. Great on SMA, too! And it provides a sound interlock between new overlays and profiled surfaces. It’s bonus time!

Midland Model SPD-8 Makes Shoulder/Berm Work Easier    

   

The Midland Model SPD-8 road widener is designed to place shoulder materials out 8 ft. (2.4 m) wide next to main line pavements. The SPD-8 has been upgraded to accept the John Deere Tier IV version of the 4.5 L engine and controls allow conveyor belt speed and on/off and spreader blade functions from the operator’s control panel. The hopper and spreader blade are in full view in front of the operator with no fatiguing looking back “over–the-shoulder “ to watch the spreading operations. The SPD-8 easily changes over from right hand spreading to left hand spreading by moving the operator’s controls from right to left, moving right hand tools to transport position and opening the left side blade to the desired spread width. For more information, visit The SPD-8 has been up-graded to accept the www.roadwidener.com. John Deere Tier IV version of the 4.5 L engine and controls allow conveyor belt speed and on/off and spreader blade functions from the operator’s control panel.

Atmosphere of Uncertainty Prevails, Says CEO Sutton ELFA from page 1

ates the effects of various related and external factors in play currently and into the foreseeable future. According to the report, the U.S. economy is largely in the same position it has been in for the past six months, with improving fundamentals weighed down by a number of headwinds resulting in subpar growth. Positive economic drivers noted in the report include a recovering housing market, inexpensive natural gas benefitting households and the industrial sector, solid auto sales, rising consumer confidence, improving credit availability for households and businesses and steady job gains. However, the report noted that a number of nagging headwinds, including fiscal consolidation, rising oil prices, and renewed fiscal policy tensions, continue to constrain growth. William G. Sutton, president of the foundation and president and CEO of the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, said, “Equipment and software investment in 2013 continues to look like a tale of two halves, with slower growth in the first half of the year and modest improvement forecast for the second half. However, an atmosphere of uncertainty prevails, spurred by current fiscal policy debates, including the looming debt-ceiling fight, and a stubbornly tepid U.S. and global economy.” Highlights from the study include: • The U.S. economy is expected to generate positive but modest growth of 1.7 percent in 2013. • Equipment and software investment slowed from 3.1 percent annualized growth in Q1 2013 to just 1.0 percent (quarter-to-quarter annualized) in Q2. The slower growth is a reflection of broader macroeconomic headwinds and uncertainty, but also categorical revisions to the Bureau of Economic Analysis’s equipment investment accounts. Looking ahead, a modest uptick in investment is expected through the end of the year, with an overall forecast of 3.3 percent growth in equipment and software investment for 2013. • Overall, the outlook for credit markets remains optimistic as investors continue to be risk-on, credit availability is steadily increasing, and the Federal Reserve is expected to maintain a near-zero shortterm interest policy until economic conditions suggest otherwise. • Growth in equipment and software investment is expected to be mixed. Leading indicators point towards a pos-

sible stabilization in investment in agriculture equipment. Fairly average growth is expected for investment in computers and software, construction, industrial, medical, and transportation equipment. Trends include: • Agriculture equipment investment is expected to remain weak on a quarter-toquarter basis, but unusually poor performance in Q3 2012 could translate into positive annual growth in the second half of 2013. • Computers and software investment is expected to grow at a slower pace than has been observed over the past several years. Annual growth should be in the 0 to 3 percent range during Q3 and Q4 of 2013. • Construction equipment investment continued its rapid growth, up 38 percent year-over-year in the second quarter, as investment has continued to grow at what is likely an unsustainable rate. Leading indicators all decelerated recently, suggesting that a negative correction could occur within the nextthree to six months. • Industrial equipment investment grew 1.4 percent year-over-year in Q2 and is expected to grow at a slightly faster rate in the second half of 2013. • Medical equipment investment indicators look bleak, suggesting little to no growth going forward. • Transportation equipment investment is expected to improve some and grow between 2 percent and 5 percent yearover-year moving forward The foundation produces the Equipment Leasing & Finance U.S. Economic Outlook report in partnership with economics and public policy consulting firm Keybridge Research. The annual economic forecast released in December provides a three-tosix-month outlook for industry investment with data, including a summary of investment trends in key equipment markets, credit market conditions, the U.S. macroeconomic outlook and key economic indicators. The Q4 report is the third update to the 2013 Annual Outlook. The 2014 Annual Outlook will be published in December. For more information, visit www.leasefoundation.org.

Power From Facility to Be Sold to City Departments SOLAR from page 1

20-year contracts and exported to Southern California. Known as Copper Mountain Solar 1, the facility is one of the largest photovoltaic solar power plants in the United States. Located near existing power plants and transmission lines, the plant requires no water to generate a new source of clean, emission-free electricity. In 2011, the plant was named “Solar Project of the Year” by Renewable Energy World. Although conflicting reports differ on the number of permanent full-time positions the plant generated (from five to 10), more consistent estimates indicate the plant will generate about considerable income for Boulder City. City of Sun That income is gladly welcomed. Boulder City, once home to thousands who built Hoover Dam in the 1930s, has been struggling with a flagging local economy. Fortunately for the sunny desert town, 15 years ago it bought up vast amounts of land to protect itself from the sprawling reach of neighboring Las Vegas. The purchase included all the land around the transmission lines leading to the dam and now they are leasing that property to Sempra and others who want to use the lines. Attracting solar investment has provided a much-needed boost to Boulder City’s economy. According to a 2011 CNN report by Tom Foreman, renting its land to solar developers like Sempra brought in $2.5 million, or eleven percent of the city’s general fund. Although financed primarily by private dollars, large solar installations like Copper Mountain Solar still rely on government incentives to defray costs and make the upfront investment feasible. Copper Mountain Solar 1 received about $40 million in federal investment tax credits and another $12 million from the state of Nevada in sales and property tax abatements. The state’s investment is expected to be recouped over time, with the project estimated to generate $35 million in tax revenue over the life of its 30-year lease. Boulder City will collect an additional $60 million over the course of the lease for renting the land to Sempra. Solar is Hot Although the U.S. solar industry lags behind Europe’s, Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said that solar is growing so fast, “it is going to overtake everything.” (per Greentech Media) Solar is a growing market. The U.S. solar

In 2013 Sempra began construction of a third expansion of its Copper Mountain Solar complex, currently one of the largest photovoltaic solar plants in the United States.

market had a strong first quarter in 2013, with 723 MW of solar PV capacity installed, a 33 percent increase in deployment levels over the first quarter of 2012, according to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association. The United States now has over 8,500 MW of cumulative installed solar electric capacity, enough to power more than 1.3 million average American homes. That could be due in part to the fact that prices are falling. The same report found that the average price of a solar panel has declined by 60 percent since the beginning of 2011. One solar PV system is currently being installed in the United States every four minutes. If market growth continues at its current pace, the report continues, the American solar industry could be installing a system every minute and twenty seconds by 2016. In fact, GTM has forecast this growth will continue throughout the year with 4,400MW of PV and 938MW of concentrating solar power expected to come online by the end of 2013. Unique Aspects “As a general rule, Sempra U.S. Gas & Power does not share [that] level of detail in relation to how its facilities are constructed,” said Sempra spokesperson Jill Howard in response to inquiries about the construction process. She did, however, point out several innovative aspects of Copper Mountain Solar 1. “Copper Mountain Solar 1 is the first renewable power plant to operate under a California Independent System Operator [CAISO] ‘pseudo-tie’ pilot program.” Participation in the program provides the

CAISO with critical data used to test and validate systems and procedures for management of out-of-state variable resources. In support of CAISO’s new interconnection initiatives for renewable power generators, the solar installation is also among the first solar power plants to implement a customized plant control system that provides active power management. The system allows the plant operations team to quickly respond to system requirements from a consolidated control center, rather than manually controlling individual units throughout the facility. Take Two The same increased consumer demand for clean energy along with state policies mandating increased renewable power production that drove Sempra U.S. Gas & Power’s decision to focus on renewable energy development led to a move to expand. Copper Mountain Solar 2 is a joint venture of Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development. Construction of the 150 MW first phase expansion, called Copper Mountain Solar 2, on the 1,100-acre site began in late 2011, creating 175 temporary construction jobs and eight positions to operate the facility. The first 92 MW of solar panels at Copper Mountain Solar 2 were installed in late 2013, with the remaining 58 MW expected to be completed by 2015. Power generated at the 150-megawatt (MW) solar plant is sold to Pacific Gas & Electric under a 25-year contract. When the second phase is finished, the solar plant will be capable of generating enough clean electricity to power about 45,000 homes.

Third Time’s a Charm In 2013 Sempra began construction of a third expansion of its Copper Mountain Solar complex, currently one of the largest photovoltaic solar plants in the United States Situated on about 1,400 acres of land, Solar 3 is a 250 MW solar project that will be the largest polycrystalline solar project in the world, capable of generating enough electricity to power about 80,000 homes. Construction by developer AMEC has already begun and is expected to create 300 temporary construction jobs and 12 permanent operations jobs. When completed, power from the facility will be sold to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the City of Burbank under a 20year contract with the Southern California Public Power Authority. Scheduled for completion in 2015, Copper Mountain 3 will use polycrystalline solar panels, the most cost-effective of the main types of solar panels available on the market. Solar panel manufacturer Trina Solar will provide 1.1 million of its PV polycrystalline modules. “This is the largest single installation using polycrystalline modules that is currently proposed, permitted and under construction, with PPA and financing in place,” said Mark Mendenhall, president of Trina Solar Americas told Responding to Climate Change. “As such, it is a first using this technology in a single location of this size.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)
