CHALLENGE

Unsafe Previous Method

The existing transport frame methods used by the client for transport of heavy transformers including oil were proving ineffective for the customer as they were often non-compliant to road-transport standards under Schedule 7 of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). With non-compliance, the frustration of not knowing if the frame is safe, is costly and can be a real challenge. With harsh conditions onsite for storage of the large transformers, keeping this expensive equipment safe was also a critical consideration, making sure that assets do not suffer costly damage.  This calls for a solution which can be relied on to safely transport heavy components and store them when they reach site.

SOLUTION

Complete Transport Frame Solution

To meet the customer’s need, DAYWALK collaborated, designed, engineered and delivered a leading transformer transport system. With this best-in-class system, you can safely transport the transformer with the assurance that any oil spillage will be captured and that the transformer can be safely stored in the harsh environment onsite. Combining our leading ARRESTA Lug system for truck restraint, with our crane lift roof system, roll up canopy and the back up of leading design and transport certification this is another transformative transport outcome.
