ODLS have developed specialist expertise in the transport, loading, unloading, storage, delivery and installation of electrical transformers between 30 and 250 tonne. We have a dedicated transformer storage yard which holds an average of 50 transformers at any time. Transformers are handled in our yard and on site by one of our 200 tonne mobile cranes or using our jacking system and skating equipment.
We have expanded our capabilities to include specialist crews who install and assemble the transformers and accessories.
They have undergone induction and safety training with various external providers and have “Red Book” and “Blue Book” qualifications and “Permit Receiver” status with most. By continually upgrading our compliance training and inductions, ODLS is able to supply experienced labour hire under manufacturers’ supervision to install transformers.
Our aim is to continue to foster this service to become the primary provider of services to the industry for the relocation, installation and even, at the end of their life, the removal and demolition of the larger transformers.
Jacking & Skating
Jacking and Skating can be the ideal alternative to mobile cranes where access for a mobile crane can be difficult or even impossible.
ODLS has a number of heavy rated prime movers, at 205 tonne rating, and currently have the capability of transporting loads up to 500 tonne.
