We were tasked with finding the most cost-effective and workable solution to deliver a 132kv Super Grid power transformer, weighing 180 tonnes.

Following discharge from an ocean vessel, which originated in Korea, Hemisphere took responsibility of safely transporting the transformer from Rotterdam Port through to the National Grid site on the UK’s east coast. We’re extremely proud to have been involved in a project which is important to the environment and to our local community.

This on-shore transformer is a vital part in the Galloper wind farm project and, once operational, this wind farm will provide renewable energy for around 300,000 UK homes. As part of our scope of work, we appointed a trusted specialist trucking and installation company.

With our partner, we assessed the possible routing for the cargo both in terms of the UK port of discharge and the local trucking routes which would be allowed by the UK highways authorities and police.

As well as sourcing various specialist transportation solutions, we also ensured that additional security was in place for the cargo and road trailer whilst on quay awaiting its permitted delivery date.
