Kuehne + Nagel on the transformer trail

All transformers are being shipped from Busan, South Korea and delivered to 11 difference project sites. Since the beginning of the year, K+N has completed four of these shipments.

For the Bishops Wood substation, K+N was responsible for the delivery of a 240 MVA weighing 178 tonnes. Ten containers were also delivered to the site.

Similar shipments have been delivered to National Grid’s Cellarhead, Tilbury and Eaton Socon sites.

K+N’s scope of work includes shipping, transportation to site and installation on behalf of its client Posco International.
