HEAVY CARGO TRANSPORT OF A TREMENDOUS TRANSFORMER DURING THE NIGHT
Beginning of September a tremendous transformer with 287 tons was delivered from the Netherlands to the Electric Power Station in Hardegsen.
For the initial leg of the journey the transformer, produced in the Netherlands, was transported by river barge to Krefeld.
Afterwards it was taken by our own 24 axle schnabel car for delivery to Emmenhausen on rail.
After arrival at the station the colossus of 50 m length was transshipped on a road configuration by two self-propelled modular transporters, each 680 hp, on road.
For this last leg of 12 km the convoy needed 3 ½ hours and arrived successfully at the Electric Power Station in Hardegsen.
