Reshamsingh powers through

first_imgPower Grid Corporation of India placed a USD653.6 million order with power and automation group, ABB, for an ultra-high voltage direct current (UHVDC) transmission system. The link will supply hydropower from mountainous northeast India to the populous region of Agra in central India, 1,700 km away. Reshamsingh & Co handled the transportation of a transformer tank from Mundra Port to a substation in Agra for the development. It also moved a 12.55 m x 4.26 m x 4.53 m transformer weighing 310 tonnes from Kandla Port to Agra – a distance of around 1,700 km – using 16 axles. The shipment moved along a new heavy lift bypass road along which 132 bridges were constructed. In a separate move, Reshamsingh & Co coordinated the delivery of two transformers weighing 337 tonnes each for the Siemens-led Ballia-Bhiwadi HVDC project, located in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan. For this project Reshamsingh & Co moved the two units 1,500 km by road from BHEL Bhopal to Mundra port. The company had to build a ro-ro jetty at Mundra port before loading each transformer on a heavy-lift barge. From there, two tug vessels delivered the consignment to Calcutta – approximately 2,500 nautical miles away – on India’s east coast. Upon arrival a shallow draught tug was mobilised to pull the barge upstream to Ballia, where a second temporary ro-ro jetty was fabricated to roll off each transformer. Reshamsingh & Co then completed the final leg of the journey, a 150 km haul by road. Each unit was safely jacked and slid from their respective trailers onto their final foundations, upon arrival at the final jobsite. Reshamsingh & Co is a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network, representing India.Transformers loaded for the Siemen’s project www.reshamsinghgroup.com     www.cargoequipmentexperts.comlast_img read more
