September 2021, our team made the 5 day, 1,200km Journey from Collinsville Qld to Kumbarilla Park Qld, transporting a Large Power Transformer (LPT).
When transporting an LPT, there are requirements that need to be met, obtaining permits & submitting routes for approval from the governing body of the roads in that state. Obtaining these permits requires infrastructure inspections of bridges & other obstacles along the way.In this case RJA had to obey bridge compliances of only 2 trucks to be hooked to the load whilst crossing, to ensure the load fell within the weight compliance of these specified structures.

Being transported on board of the 2 x 10 axle platforms, beamset configuration was a LPT weighing 182T & dimensions 10m long x 3.5m wide x 4.6m high.
Once loaded, 4 prime movers were attached in place to give enough weight to power ratio to undertake the journey.
The loading & unloading process was done with a walking machine.
