Logistical masterpiece in Frankonia

06.05.2015

This night, a house-sized, 260-tonne power transformer (490 tonnes including the low-loader vehicle) was delivered to the substation Würgau operated by TenneT, one of the German transmission system operators (TSOs). The transformer was built by Siemens in Nuremberg, around 80 km away from Würgau in the north of Bavaria, Germany. The trailer carrying the transformer from the railway station in Bamberg for the final 22-kilometre trip by road is about 54 metres long and travels at about 15 kilometres an hour. What a sight at night!
