271-tonne transformer unloaded
A 271-tonne transformer was unloaded at Jansen’s dismantling yard in Vlaardingen. The transformer was on board a coaster and was unloaded using the ‘Matador’, a Bonn & Mees sheerleg.
The transformer came from Turkey and was constructed in 2004. Due to a fault, it no longer fulfilled the applicable electrical specifications. It proved impossible to repair the transformer, which is why it was sent to us for dismantling. Its total (dry) weight is 271 tonnes. Jansen Recycling Group’s dismantling yard in Vlaardingen is highly suitable for unloading objects of this sort.
