JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd have completed successfully a high profile move of a 166,000kg generator transformer from an oil fired power station to a nuclear power station. The project involved the skidding, utilising our hydraulic skid system of the transformer from inside a building, out of the building and into the roadway where it was loaded to a girder trailer.
The transformer then travelled at night down the West coast of Scotland under full police escort. The transformer was offloaded to a storage plinth as a spare for the nuclear power station. The complicated project was a complete success and completed well within project parameters.
