Apex Specialized Rigging and Moving recently delivered 7 transformers to 4 different substations spread out over 1200 km in BC. The transformers all arrived on the same ship to North Vancouver. We received them all direct discharge to a barge, as they were too large to leave the port by road without having to perform bridge studies.
Thanks to our convenient location close to barge access in Delta, we were able to marshal all the transformers in our yard so the utility could perform their inspections on them prior to dispatching to the various substations. This saved our client time and money compared to having the transformers sitting at the port waiting for their inspections. Two of the transformers were offloaded to storage in our yard to save our client demurrage on the trailers due to one of the substations not being ready to receive the transformers. Once the inspections were complete, and the substations ready, the transformers were then sent out to the various substations where we offloaded via jack and slide to the pads.
Thanks to our ability to work multiple sites at once, we were able to deliver the transformers quickly and efficiently. 7 transformers were delivered in 2 weeks, allowing our client to beat their contractual dates with the utility.
