Rigging and Hauling Job of the Year winners Emmert International and Barnhart also made presentations on an additional five jobs. Barnhart chronicled the haul of a 160,000 pound vessel from Corpus Christi, TX to the Panhandle of Texas as well as the rigging associated with the installation of a 68,000 pound shield door at the High Flux Isotope Reactor at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Emmert International submitted three additional rigging entries, including the pick and move of two diesel engine generator systems from 55 feet below ground at a nuclear plant in Washington, the insertion into a building of two replacement vessels down a narrow alleyway to a plant in Oregon, and the task of lifting and moving a turbine engine that had rolled off a truck in a small tunnel in Eastern Washington.
