Transformer Installation & Removal / Jacking, Skidding & Rigging

Transformer Installation & Removal / Jacking, Skidding & Rigging

When it comes to installing or removing transformers, we provide an economical, flexible, tailored solution for everyone, and constantly invest in the latest technology and equipment to minimise cost and risk.

We have specialised in transformer installation and removals, jacking, skidding and rigging for more than 45 years and guarantee a professional service for all our customers.

The equipment we use to install and remove heavy plant machinery, like transformers, is fully tested and certified and can be adapted to suit even the most challenging projects.

Where space is limited, jacking, skidding, and rigging are more practical alternatives to hiring a crane. One of the reasons why we use jacking, skidding and rigging systems to manoeuvre heavy transformers in power plants is to reduce the need for multiple workers to operate different machines in sync. It also enables us to relocate machinery in tight spaces without causing damage.

If needed, we can supply forklift trucks, appropriate attachments and experienced operators, as part of our transformer installation and removal service – ensuring you have everything you need to handle loads.

We recently successfully completed a high-profile move of a 166,000kg generator transformer from a nuclear power station. To complete the project, we used our hydraulic skid system to move the transformer from inside the building to the roadway outside, ready to be loaded to a girder trailer. The transformer was then transported, in the evening, down the west coast of Scotland under full police escort.

If you’d like to know more about transformer installation and removals, don’t hesitate to contact our team of experts today. Always on hand to help, we will be more than willing to guide and advise you. Call 01695 737 880 or email enquiries@jbrawcliffe.com.
