Exceptional transport in Apulia: the handling by road of a 146 ton transformer
From the port of Bari to Matera. This is the route taken by a 146 ton transformer destined for a power station in Basilicata. The Marraffa company's personnel performed this exceptional transport of a transformer, which was particularly challenging due to its high load capacity, on a road section with numerous obstacles to overcome.
For this reason, two transport configurations had to be set up. In the first section, the transformer was moved using so-called the Girder Bridge System with a total length of almost 70 metres and a width of 4.60 m, pulled by two tractors, one at the front and one at the rear of the convoy.
