Massive transformer to be transported in UK

Hauliers Collet & Sons will be moving a super grid transformer from Ellesmere Port to the National Grid Substation in Cellarhead, Stoke-on-Trent, UK, on Saturday and Sunday (July 21 and 22).

The 184-ton transformer will have a combined length of 60 metres when on the trailer and will be 5.4 metres wide – the same length as three ordinary lorries and width of two.

The load will leave Ellesmere Port at approximately 8am on Saturday and is expected to arrive at the substation around midday on Sunday.

Collett & Sons began work to move the massive transformer in early 2018. To help accommodate the transformer, local council will remove street furniture and even traffic lights, so it can fit down the roads.
