GAC Logistics handles giant transformers

March 30 - GAC Logistics' Kuwaiti branch has completed delivery and placement of four 210 tonne transformers at the Jaber Al Ahmed "W" substation.

Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company appointed GAC Kuwait to handle the transformers during the Kuwaiti leg of transportation and final installation onsite.

Ronald Lichtenecker, GAC Kuwait's managing director said: "A lot of preplanning is required to carry out such an operation. Despite the transformers' massive weight and special requirements, our experienced sea freight and project team handled the job smoothly thanks to our well-honed system. The jacking/skidding operations for example have to be carried out very slowly and with military precision. The excellent cooperation of our local transport partners also played an important role.

"GAC Kuwait has been handling specialised transport of heavy, wide and oversized cargo for many years, and this has given our team the solid knowledge and experience that it takes to take care of even the most challenging and unique of project cargoes."
