The Job - 450' Towers on the Ivanpah Solar Project

The Problem:

The ironworkers at Bechtel Corp were having problems getting the towers plumb on the Ivanpah Solar Project. The largest solar field in the world.

To: BPB Mfg Co-
I recently promoted the use of [the Bazooka Bob] within our company due to great results we were seeing when we went to verify the plumbness and square of some prefabricated modules.

(from an inter-company email-)
"I wanted to share with everyone a tool that has made a world of difference on our project.... Here on the Ivanpah Solar Project we are erecting 450' towers and the last 110' is being built with 5 modules. Prior to using this tool, the ironworkers frequently had plumb and square issues, even when utilizing transits, survey support, etc. They started using a tool called the "Bazooka Plumb Bob". Since then, they have had negligible amounts of error... The end result is a plumb and square structure, that prior to the Bazooka Plumb Bob, they couldn't accomplish with twice the effort using lasers, survey support, etc.... I would HIGHLY recommend this tool to the ironworker crews...
