Landmark project for Martin Bencher

Martin Bencher has transported a transformer, weighing almost 400 tonnes and measuring 12 m long, in Sweden on behalf of Hitachi Energy.

According to Martin Bencher, it is the heaviest transformer to be transported on public roads to date. The convoy weighed 762 tonnes, measured 5.5 m wide and 105 m long. 

Among the challenges, a section of road was lowered under three bridges, a belly trailer was added in order to cross five bridges, a flyover bridge was utilised, and five railroad crossings had to be de-electrified. New roads also had to be built and barriers and lights dismantled. 

“This has been nothing but a ‘greatest hits’ of technical solutions to ensure a feasible and safe route for the transformer that will be the heart of what will become Sweden’s largest wind power cluster,” said Martin Bencher.
