Sugar Hollow Trout Park & Hatchery
In spring 2011, Leonard Crawford Electric installed the first HydroWatch Enterprise Level SCADA System at the Sugar Hollow Trout Park & Hatchery in Tunkhannock PA. This system has gone on to be highlighted in both the Chief Oil & Gas Newsletter and the Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre, PA). In July 2011, this same system was nominated for the Innovation of the Year Award by the Marcellus Shale Coalition with the award to be presented by Governor Tom Corbett at the Shale Gas Insight show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.

The image to the left is of a Pilger Mill that was modified as a safety initiative that added safety equipment and safety monitoring systems to ensure operator and maintenance personnel protection from moving equipment. These safety scanners were integrated into the existing Category 3 Safety system along with the process data being incorporated into the machine Profibus network. Once the project was completed, users could be assured that once a safety boundary was broken, the machine was incapable of being restarted until the safety boundary was re-established and a manual restart procedure was completed.
