Egyptian Global Logistics transports a 175 MVA transformer
The Alexandria-based transportation and logistics company, Egyptian Global Logistics, transported a 175 MVA transformer between two sites in El-Alamein, Egypt.
The Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL) project team coordinated with the customer and third parties to arrange the transportation of the transformer, between two sites in El-Alamein, Egypt. Although the cargo, transported via truck, only travelled approximately 20 kilometres, several factors complicated this delivery.
Special preparations were needed at both sites, to meet minimum standard safety requirements and suitable ground-bearing pressure requirements during operations. There were also challenges regarding electricity shut-down permissions and a total skidding distance of almost 40 metres at both sites. Despite this, the transport was executed in a safe and timely manner.
