Pittsburgh Transformer Rig & Transport
A Local Utility Company had a need to rig and transport one transformer from one substation to another substation within the city limits of Pittsburgh, PA. The challenging haul included jacking and sliding the transformer seven times from truck to rail to truck, and then maneuvering the load under a railroad bridge by sliding the load on rails and then back to truck.
Transport Unlimited assumed responsibility for the entire process associated with the difficult haul, and directed every detail including: town meetings, security and emergency medical personnel, certified wire lifters, route surveys, parking spaces and road improvements.
