Three enormous power transformers transported through Suffolk

United Kingdom, Suffolk: Last week three enormous electrical transformers were transported by road from Lowestoft docks to Sizewell, the slow-moving convoys causing disruption over three days on the B1122 as it made its way through small villages.

The three power transformers will replace existing equipment at the Sizewell nuclear power station during refuelling and maintenance work taking place in April, reports Ipswich Star.

The convoy disturbed residents who have been campaigning to prevent the B1122 – which runs from the A12 to Leiston – being used as route for construction traffic for the power plant Sizewell C.

An EDF spokeswoman explained that they had to take three separate trips and ensure slowness of the vehicles for safety reasons.
