Transformer and eHouse Move in Narrows Inlet, BC

On February 12, 2018  Category:  T-Lane Nation Case Studies

T-Lane’s jack and slide crew spent some time in Narrows Inlet transporting an 110 000 lbs transformer and a 15’6″ high, 14’2″ wide and 27′ long eHouse.

The transformer was needing to be moved from it’s temporary blocking to it’s permanent destination. The T-Lane crew utilized jack and sliding methods, along with a specialized self-propelled trailer (SPMT) to complete the move. With 5 km of logging roads between the origin and destination, at a 15% grade, the team at T-Lane used every precaution to ensure safe delivery of this equipment.

The eHouse was transferred up the logging road on a regular deck-style trailer, before being transferred onto the SPMT and moved into position.

Jack and sliding is a technique used to transfer equipment that cannot necessarily be done with a crane. T-Lane’s Jack and Slide team has over 50 years experience in the service, combined.

An SPMT trailer is a self-propelled trailer which is remote controlled. This trailer can be reconfigured to meet any client’s needs.
