Transformers for the “City of the 10th Ramadan”
Madinat al-Ashir min Ramadan, or as we say the “city of the 10th Ramadan”, was the destination for six Universal Transport trucks in July. Each of these was loaded with one transformer, which are intended for a power plant that is currently under construction. They are now stored on the construction site for three months until the foundation is completed.
The 46 ton transformers were loaded at the port of Alexandria. A special crane with a weight of 250 tons was used for the safe loading and unloading process. Universal Transport’s experts took a total of six hours from the port to their destination, Egypt’s largest satellite city.
Universal Transport has been represented in Egypt with its own subsidiary since 2016. “Egypt continues to be an interesting market for us, with a lot of potential for expansion, especially in the industrial and plant construction, it is important to have experts on site who know the market, the processes, and local customs,” says Managing Director Holger Dechant.
