“Big Blue Cart” Proves To Be The Right Tool For The Job In Decorah

Alliant Energy’s Decorah Battery Project is made up of several metal containers filled with the latest innovations in energy storage technology.

But even with all of this state-of-the art equipment, a simple metal cart RackLift™ powered by a hand crank played one of the most important roles in getting the battery in-service.

“Each of the racks in the main container holds twelve batteries at heights varying from ankle-high to well over your head,” said Rick Zimmerman, Alliant Energy Senior Strategic Project Engineer. “We needed to make the installation not only easier, but also safer.”
