ALS hauls a 79-tonne transformer from Slovenia to Hungary
Abnormal Load Services (ALS) has been busy recently hauling an oversized transformer from Slovenia to Hungary by road. The abnormal load arrived at Port of Koper where it was taken over by ALS and delivered to a project site in Hungary.
The company noted that the 79 tonne transformer was delivered to Port of Koper on one of Wallenius Wilhelmsen vessels. To remind, earlier this year, Wallenius has taken full control of ALS. The group first acquired 60 per cent of ALS back in 2012, and this full acquisition is building the company’s asset-light capability to expand and complement its asset-based services and offer full door-to-door solutions for customers.
The dimensions of the cargo were 7 metres in length, 3.75 metres in width and 3.85 metres in height. ALS’ scope of work included road transportation from port to final destination and offloading by crane at the site. Discharge of the transformer at site on to a plinth using a 500 Tonne mobile crane was organised by the ALS team in Moerdijk, Netherlands.
The transformer will be used in a giga factory which produces batteries for electric vehicles, the company noted in its statement.
