A Parade Of A Different Kind

Heavy load of power transformers in Dorsten in Gelsenkirchen with a heavy yet not often seen 600 tonnes in Dorsten in nearby Gelsenkirchen. This happens even twice a week from the 15.8 up to the 19.8.2011. A transformer must be from a substation in a new plant and the old course from out must. No wonder that there are a number of spectators despite the late hour. Those of us who already have a moving behind him, know training and forfeiture can be as time-consuming and nerve-wracking.

To reduce this stress, a freight forwarder involved often, which completely organized the parade or a few Packers, which then help when moving. But this just normal furniture and accessories from A to B must be promoted. A great must, however, or rather huge object from one place to another, it is even more difficult. For such endeavor, there is heavy lifting or also heavy load transports, you often must hire by an international freight forwarding. It can however the case be that special shipments will be required.

Objects that are transported those are for example trains, ships or even turbines or transformers. It is only understandable that that, if something happens once, must be taken in view. For example, roughly 150 onlookers followed a heavy load by Dorsten near the town of Gelsenkirchen in the night of the 16.8 on the 17.8.2011. This low loader had loaded a giant transformer, which was relocated from a power station and had to Bottrop. Together, weighed everything good 600 tons, the transformer alone made 277 tons, and reached a proud length of approx. 80m. The transformer has a length of about 11 meters, three and a half metres wide and a height of about four metres. At this size, it is understandable that the transport around was five to six hours. When such an action it is not enough to shut off “only” on the roads and to ensure the safety of spectators. In this heavy, including the two had Bridges are fully reinforced and four more were controlled by professionals across monitors. But only the repairs is not everything.
