Aertssen Transport was contracted to transport two transformers, each measuring 6.7 x 2 x 4 metres and weighing 79 tonnes, from Hungary to the Netherlands. A load of this size and weight requires the use of our 4-bed-6 Scheurle combi. Altogether, the combi weighed 150 tonnes.

After travelling to the site, which took four nights, the driver still had to mount the truck bed between the axles before the load could be lifted in place. Once loading was completed in the factory in Tapioszele, Hungary, the journey to the Netherlands could begin. Obviously, carrying a load like this required the assistance of one or more escort vehicles along the entire route. On some stretches a police escort was also required when this was stipulated by local permits.

Thanks to clear communication between all parties involved, in combination with excellent work by the driver, both transport legs were completed with no noteworthy problems and the transformers were delivered on time to the yard at Zeewolde. The load was discharged and moved into position, by Aertssen Kranen.
