ISTANBUL (TR) - On September 16, 2019, the 154-ton giant transformer departing from Ankara reached Rotterdam. The giant transformer, which weighs 154 tons and has a volume of 110 cubic meters, was transported from Haydarpaşa Port to Rotterdam city of the Netherlands on September 20, 2019. The transformer, which was discharged to the river ship at the port of Rotterdam and downloaded to the test site, is planned to be brought back to Ankara at the end of 20 days via the same route.
Stating that a large team is carrying out the works meticulously during the transportation process, Mars Hava Deniz Kargo Project Sales and Operation Manager Ahmet Yüksek emphasizes that the transportation of heavy turbines, transformer and similar heavy tonnage loads is provided with differentiated solutions. Intermediate transport is a challenging part of logistics. All the bridges bypassed during road transshipment of the transformer, which is 5.10 m high from the ground with its dumper, from Ankara to Istanbul, were bypassed and this process was carried out in coordination with other teams. Subsequently, the transformer was safely transported to the ship in Haydarpasa port in Istanbul. In the last step, the cargo was transported to the port of Rotterdam and re-fixed by leaving the vessel on the river ship by the limbo evacuation method to be shipped to the final destination of Nijmegen. Having completed all these processes with great precision, our experienced team started preparations for the transformer's return route ”.
