Massive Hydro Transformers on the Move

Massive Hydro Transformers on the Move

One of several transformers weighing approximately 386,000 lbs each sits at CG Power Systems Canada Inc. on Sunday, November 4, 2012 prior to being moved about 150 km at a pace of 5 km/h. Manitoba Hydro is moving the transformers to its Riel Station to make improvements on its 500,000-volt line linking Manitoba to Minnesota. The trip is expected to take three days.
