At nearly 2 million pounds, this Toshiba generator is probably one of the heaviest loads ever moved. The legendary Mammaoet Transports has made this miracle possible.
Mammoet transport is well-known for carrying massive loads across the globe. This long and slow journey of Duke Energy’s 1.9-million pound Toshiba generator started from Charleston, South Carolina and went up to Cliffside, North Carolina.
The average speed never exceeded more than 5 miles per hour. You can also notice some security vehicles moving along the generator, not that some one is going to steal this 950 tons generator.
This generator is certainly one of the heaviest loads American roadways have born. The massive generator, as long as a football field, creeps on specially designed thirty-six axles truck to distribute the weight.
This Mammoet Transport rig is using four semi-trucks that deliver the needed power. This generator became the heart of 825 megawatts coal unit at the Duke’s Cliffside Steam Station.
