The transformer, which measured 23 ft (7 m) long, was being moved on an emergency basis as the original unit was involved in a train accident in South Carolina, says Beyel Brothers.

In Rockledge, Beyel Brothers utilised its 400-tonne capacity gantry system to load the transformer from the railcar on to its 128-wheeled Trail King TK 600 trailer.

Equipped with a Peterbilt pull truck and pusher unit from Pacific Truck, the convoy began the 100-mile (160.9-km) journey to the Gaco Substation. Due to the large overall height of the trailer configuration, there were multiple areas along the route where the convoy had to cross traffic in order to avoid overhead obstructions.

After two days, the transformer arrived at the project site, where Beyel Brothers used a jack and slide system to move the cargo from the trailer to its foundation.
