Beyel Bros' big move

February 7 - Beyel Bros has moved a transformer, with a total weight of 720,000 lbs (326 tonnes), to an electrical substation in central Florida, US, for Florida Power & Light.

The transformer was transported 15 miles (24.14 km) from an electrical substation in southern Florida, and encountered bridge clearance restrictions and weight limitations.

According to Beyel Bros, the transformer was therefore moved on two different transporters; the first, a low-boy 12-axle 96 wheel Kamag, was used to pass under two bridges.

The transformer was then jacked up and moved onto a 24-axle 192 wheel Goldhofer transporter, which would spread the weight of the load over the road surface, to avoid damaging the roadway.

Both transporters were pulled by a Peterbilt 850 with the Goldhofer requiring an additional push from behind by an Oshkosh 50-ton (48.9-tonne) truck, says Beyel Bros.
