Versalift Aerial Lifts Support Key Industries Across Wyoming

Aerial lifts are crucial to supporting the work of important Wyoming businesses and government organizations. Because they are necessary to maintain the flow of electricity and telecommunications service, aerial lifts, and especially those that are vehicle-mounted are a common sight across the state. As is the case with much of the United States, almost all power and data infrastructure is built above the ground in Wyoming. Other common users of vehicle mounted aerial lifts in Wyoming include mining, land management, visual communications, cellular tower construction, wind turbine maintenance and a broad set of daily tasks that support safe, well-lit and clearly-marked roadways.

Aerial Lifts and the Electric Power and Utility Industry in Wyoming

Aerial lifts that support electric utility infrastructure in Wyoming look very different depending on where in the state they are. Rural areas of Wyoming are most often powered by member-owned electric cooperatives. These not-for-profit organizations provide consistent and reliable electric power, at cost, to their members. Rural electric cooperatives value reliability and durability, because their customers live further apart, and linemen have more distance to cover to perform maintenance tasks with their insulated, vehicle-mounted aerial lifts. Investor-owned utility companies that operate in Wyoming, like Pacificorp, offer their services to more densely populated, suburban and urban areas. 

Below is a short list of some organizations that provide electric power to consumers in Wyoming:

Aerial Lifts and their applications for Forestry in Wyoming

Aerial lifts that are purposed for timber, forestry and vegetation management work in Wyoming must be rugged and durable. Of Wyoming’s more than 62 million total acres of land, approximately ten million acres are forested. Logging and timber is not a major industry in the state, so forestry work is more heavily focused on land management responsibilities. The Wyoming State Forestry Division was formed in 1952. The division is directly responsible for 263,000 acres of forest trust lands throughout the state. The majority of forested lands in Wyoming are part of National Parks.
