The Capacity to Create

Our skilled staff can take an engineered approach to solving project challenges. Project solutions are created by a team of certified Professional Engineers and experienced craftsmen who partner to design, fabricate, and test virtually anything required for a project.

Building Our Own

Our capacity to design and fabricate is made possible in part by the in-house design and manufacturing of our own specialty crane line, VersaCrane™, with models ranging from 750 to 3,000 tons in capacity.

  • Our fabrication facilities total nearly 100,000 square feet.
  • The facilities are equipped with the tools needed such as a state-of-the-art robot welder, CNC tables, lathes, boring machines, radial drilling machines, cutting tables, saws, and multi-process welders.
  • 24-hour crews are available.
  • In addition to using our fabrication facilities to create custom project-specific solutions and VersaCranes™, we also use these facilities to create steel distribution systems, moment connection bridge ramps, temporary bridge systems, rigging, bolsters, and barge ramps, all of which will bring additional strength, efficiency, and safety to your project.

With these capabilities, we respond to client needs and provide faster service and quicker turnaround time, saving our clients time and money. When it comes to our business, we believe if it can be done, Deep South Crane & Rigging has the experience and the resources to do it best.

    Many Lifts, One Solution: Modular Lift System Flexes Hydraulic Muscles During Process Plant Overhaul

    Deep South crews were challenged to haul, lift, and set 84 modules, including three towers (one measuring 100’ long, 350,000 lbs.) as well as various pieces of process equipment, such as piping, tanks, PDC buildings, and transformers—all within a tight schedule. Many of the modules had offset centers of gravity further complicating the lift and set.

    Transporters and Cranes Facilitate Processing Plant Upgrade

    The movement and replacement of process plant components are a familiar site in in the Texas Gulf Coast region—though not often to the scale and timeline faced by one EPC contractor. Per the client, the contractor was tasked with the haul and lift of two trains of fractionation tower components (debutanizer, depropanizer, splitter and deethanizer) over the course of nine months.
