VIDEO: Check out this 777,200 pound heavy haul job


Multiple companies and agencies came together in Nebraska to make a heavy haul happen.

This spring, the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) replaced an aging transformer with a new autotransformer weighing 777,200 pounds.

The autotransformer was transported from the factor in Alabama to Omaha by rail.

Getting the autotransformer to the substation required assistance from the Nebraska Department of Transportation, Nebraska State Patrol, Commonwealth Electric Co., Patriot Crane & Rigging, and OxBo Mega Transport Solutions.

According to OPPD, the specialized heavy-haul system was more than 400 feet long, with 216 tires and weighing 1.2 million pounds, including the transformer. The rig traveled less than 10 m.p.h., arriving at its destination eight hours after embarking.
