To move a transformer for a local substation in Newport News, the specialists assembled the trailer in a 4+6 combination with flat deck.
“We had a permitted gross weight of 423,430 lbs. and rough outline dimensions of 130’ length, 11’4” width and 15’3” height”, explained operations manager Josh Sohler and describes some more details. “This unit came into another terminal. However due to the overall height, we made alternate arrangements with the local floating crane to have this unit discharged at the Newport News Marine Terminal.”
Huge transport challenges could be managed
From the NNMT, Dynamic Specialized transported the transformer unit about 10 miles total, with the various restrictions. This required utilizing city jurisdictional streets, getting onto the State Maintained roads, entering the interstate highway and back onto the city streets for the final delivery.
Some huge challenges that could be easily handled thanks to the ideal transport equipment. Josh Sohler: “As always, we had all of the proper planning and coordination completed upfront. The project delivery went overwhelmingly smooth for the Dynamic crew with the use of our Faymonville modular axle lines.”
Modularity and easy to use
Highest quality in manufacturing and used materials helps companies such as Dynamic Specialized to work without interruptions. Josh Sohler specifies different useful features. “Rolled platform deck edges, more robust steering arms or easily accessible knee pin locations have helped keep us on the road longer with significantly reduced support requirements”.
Faymonville’s modularity, interoperability, capacity and ease of use have allowed Dynamic “to do more, with less” and “that has and continues to be a major key to success”.
