WEST VIRGINIA | After offloading the two transformers from the barge, Buckingham completed the final phase of delivering them to the new substation. Buckingham's team worked tirelessly to plan and engineer the equipment and safety protocols for the complicated 70-mile route, which included using custom bridge jumpers over an old bridge, traveling wrong-way for several miles of interstate, traversing narrow back-roads with steep ditches & tight curves, and dealing with steep grades on both paved and dirt roads. We used a custom-built 36-axle dual-lane transporter for weight distribution for most of the move, then transloaded to 12 lines of Goldhofer E-Steer for the long, narrow climb to the power station. The 1.5-mile gravel road to the site had a 16% climb to the ridge and then a 12% slope down into the substation. A Cat D9T provided push power and hold-back heft for the slopes. When we reached the substation, we used the Buckingham jack & slide system to unload the transformers to their concrete pad foundations.
