Westdijk recently received an order to move 3 heavy transformers domestically in Belgium. It was only a short distance, but it took a tremendous amount of planning.
The transformers, weighing an incredible 187 tonnes, were collected using Westdijks multi-axle modular 16 row trailers. Due to the total gross weight of the loaded trailer combination Westdijk provided 2 trucks to pull each heavy load. The one at the front was a ballast truck with a drawbar bar which enabled the load to be pulled up any inclines without a problem.
The overall loads were each a staggering 45.00 L x 3.00 W x 7.50m H with a total weight of 297 tonnes.
