SCOPE OF WORK
Tasked with the offload and set of an 87,000 lbs. transformer at a local substation.
The install of the transformer had a few challenges that wouldn’t allow for a simple crane offload and set. The site of installation had overhead obstructions as well as the location was too far for a crane to reach.
We offloaded the transformer with a hydraulic crane and placed it on our Jack and Slide system. This allowed us to overcome the issues with reach and overhead obstructions. We then slid the transformer into place and used jacks to set in its final location.
