Large transformer to make its way through Highland Perthshire


 United Kingdom, Scotland: A massive power transformer is to be transported by road through Scotland’s Perthshire County.

The 59-tonne grid transformer is part of an ongoing upgrade of Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks’ Rannoch substation, located towards the western end of Loch Rannoch, alongside Rannoch Power Station, reports The Courier.

The specialist delivery has been scheduled for 2 November and it will be a complex and timely operation undertaken under the guidance and supervision of Scotland Police.

The transformer will begin its journey from Skelmersdale in Lancashire the previous day, arriving at Ballinluig before undertaking the final stage in its journey to the site the following morning.
