ALE in transformer move

November 30 - ALE has used its new widening trailers to transport a transformer from Stafford to Ellesmere Port in the UK.

The 231-tonne transformer was moved in three stages over the course of three days - from Stafford to Congleton, then to Kelsall and finally to Ellesmere.

24 axle lines of the new widening trailer were used in a narrow configuration, along with one AN34 girder frame.

"The trailers can be used in two different ways, narrowed in and widened out," said Tom Irvine, ALE's senior project manager. "By keeping them narrowed in and using these under a girder frame, it showcases their flexibility and usability with different transport options."

HLPFI reported in May 2016 that ALE launched its new range of widening trailers in the UK market. The units, which were developed with Goldhofer, can be widened to 4.3m whilst loaded.
