India’s Express Transport has successfully completed the round-trip shipment of a 315 MVA transformer weighing 173 tonnes for ABB. Project management included handling the heavy lift consignment within India on both the export and import leg, Customs clearance, plus oceanfreight. 12 hydraulic axles were required to transport the transformer from Vadodara to Mumbai port were it was shipped to Europe for testing. On the return journey, the push-barge Moby Dick 1 brought the transformer to Antwerp where it was loaded on an oceangoing heavy lift vessel for onward shipment to Mumbai. For more than 60 years, Express Transport has provided dedicated project logistics and management services, as well as handling a large number of projects on a turnkey basis.
