Last month, the UK’s Bristol port facilitated the transhipment of a 178-tonne electrical transformer as part of a National Grid Hinkley expansion project in Somerset.

The transformer arrived at the port from South Korea onboard a Wallenius Wilhelmsen ro-ro vessel.

The Bristol port team worked with heavy lift specialist Mammoet to load the transformer onto the Willcarry 501 barge for onward delivery to Somerset.
