Moran Iron Works can supply a number of water control gates and other components of lock, dam and other waterway projects. Whether your project is a new installation or an upgrade retrofit, we can fabricate the gate you need. Gate types we can supply include draft tube swing gates, spillway gates, intake gates, tainter gates, miter gates and bulkhead gates, along with many others. We also have experience in stoplog fabrication for hydroelectric facilities. Our unique location on the Great Lakes allows for us to modularly assemble larger projects with limited fabrication work required at the job site. We also have experience in custom-fabricating log screens and traveling screens for use on intake water systems at large-scales facilities.

  • (CBR) Major Steel Bridges
  • (IBR) Certified Bridge Fabricator – Intermediate
  • (HYD) Hydraulic Steel Structures

  • (FCE) Fracture Critical Endorsement

Moran Iron Works is experienced in the fabrication of templates for cofferdam sets. Our design incorporates welded steel structures and cross bracing.  Our modular designs allow us to perform the majority of work at our facility, rather than your job site, which can significantly save on overall project costs.
