Weighing 59 tonnes and measuring over five meters in length, the transformer was transported in two parts along with accessories, weighing 30 tonnes. The cargo was moved 30 miles to the destination site across challenging terrain.
“An all-terrain forklift that was transported to both origin and destination sites and was used to load and unload the loose equipment,” a spokesperson for C.H. Robinson said.
