The machine was shipped in 21 sections, with the largest weighing 58 tonnes and measuring 8.4 m x 4.5 m x 4 m. The machine's crawler tracks also weighed in at 54.5 tonnes and had the dimensions 8.85 m x 2.7 m x 2.5 m.

At the manufacturing facility in Germany, the machine parts were loaded onto various low-bed trailers, semi-trailers and heavy-duty trailers for road transport to the port of Antwerp.

Once Customs clearance had been obtained, the machine parts were loaded back onto trucks and delivered by road over 4,500 km to the opencast mining site in southern Siberia.
