This has been the first attempt to transport a 155 ton ABB transformer across a continent.
A specially designed ABB transformer is the heaviest item that has been transported by air in the Americas. It weighs 155 tons and has been flown 3,000 km from Brazil to Chile to reach a customer—a logistical first which called for careful planning and millimeter-perfect design. The three-phase transformer will help provide power to more than 65,000 Chilean households.
If it had been delivered by boat, the journey would have taken a month and a half to complete. Instead, the transformer was transported in just a few hours.
