Execution

In order to prepare the transformer for transport, the cooling towers, conservator, copper piping and similar items had to be fully dismantled. With a 700 ton crane, the transformer was hoisted onto the SPMT and was then transported 500 metres to the new foundation. All of the dismantled parts were then once again reassembled.
