The multimodal logistics services provider had been assigned to handle Customs clearances, port handling and inland transportation of all seven transformers and ancillary equipment.

The transformers - each weighing 177 tonnes and with overall dimensions of 7.5 m x 5.7 m x 4.8 m - were loaded on 12 hydraulic axles having a convoy length of 28.5 m.
