Meticulous planning went on for months. Heavy-lift expert EMIL EGGER and Käppeli Logistik organized the entire transport route down to the smallest detail with all partners.
In advance, trees and hedges were trimmed, permits obtained, etc., so that the chauffeurs of the special transport with their entire heavy transport team could get through cramped stretches of road with the necessary sensitivity.
The ship is disassembled into two parts: Into the smaller upper deck and the massive lower deck weighing 80 tons. Maneuvering the bulky vehicle through the streets is a Herculean task. “Even for us as experienced heavy-cargo experts, this is an unprecedented challenge that we are happy to accept. The first stage has already worked out well. I am proud of our team and the performance of each individual,” says Michael Egger, Head of the Heavy Cargo Division at EMIL EGGER Group.
Project manager Stefan Kloter provides information about the exact voyage of the ship this week: “The first stage ended on Tuesday morning on the Hirzel. This evening, the journey continues via Wädenswil to Horgen. There, the ship will be re-embarked to sail independently on Lake Zurich to Nuolen. Late Wednesday evening, further transport is to be carried out by road in the section between Bilten and Weesen via the A3 to Lake Walen.”
