Pictured above is a hugh truck assembly, it has about 62 wheels, and was carrying a 112 ton piece of equipment, for VELCO. The above photo was taken in the front parking area of the old Black River Produce store off Route 103 in Proctorsville. The truck configuration was about 200 feet long. The item was delivered to the MasTec office. According to Kerrick Johnson of VELCO, “The $1.4 million piece of equipment it is carrying is called a Shunt Reactor. It’s purpose is help keep Vermont’s electric transmission system in balance by regulating voltage levels whether demand on the grid is heavy or light. It will be in service at our Coolidge Substation in Cavendish. Planning how to transport this device is quite a challenge.” He also added that VELCO expects two more similar deliveries in Vermont in the near future. Johnson indicated that the shunt reactor would probably be moved to a “smaller” truck for delivery to the substation, possibly on Monday, April 2.
