Heavy transformer moved by Albacor Shipping

September 30 - Albacor Shipping, a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) network, has handled the delivery of a transformer more than 28 m long and weighing more than 442 tonnes from the Port of Baltimore to Weirton, USA.

The transformer (pictured below) was loaded from the vessel to a 12-axle depressed centre rail car and transported to a rail siding in New Cumberland. As the maximum clearance was 12.7 m, the centre of gravity was set 3.94 inches off the centre line of the rail car and two 15.2 tonne counterweights were used on the opposite side to equalise the weight.

At destination the transformer was offloaded to a platform trailer and transported to the final jobsite and was jacked and slid onto the foundation.
