Power Generation

Heavy Transport • Transformers • Jacking & Skidding • Generators

An essential sector, the Power Generation market is in a state of continual development providing new and innovative ways to ‘keep the lights on’.  Experts in the industry, Collett provide transport, SPMT, lifting and jacking & skidding solutions for generators, transformers and steel castings throughout the UK and Europe.



As manufacturers develop new transformers, generators and components, Collett are often called upon to explore the logistics of transporting these abnormal loads from factory to site.  Often on a large scale, the investment in new generators and machinery for the Power sector is typically coupled with a tight schedule and a necessity to work within confined spaces.

The expertise of Collett can provide logistical planning, lifting, transport and jacking & skidding solutions for generators, transformers and steel castings throughout the UK and overseas.

Collett’s specialised fleet can adapt to abnormal loads providing expert transport logistics whilst our Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), 550Te capacity Girder Bridge and jacking & skidding equipment can facilitate the positioning of heavy generators and transformers once at the delivery site.  Collett's Projects Team will coordinate all aspects of your delivery, from discharge of the vessel at port to transport, heavy lift storage (if necessary) and final delivery.  Mindful of the co-ordination required to undertake these developments, your dedicated Project Manager will oversee the entire operation from beginning to end, whether it be for a single generator, a 500Tonne transformer or multiple abnormal loads.  Once on site our Teams can utilise our modular SPMT trailers and hydraulic jacking & skidding systems to position your generator or transformer within the restricted confines of the Power Generation facility.  Not only used for the installation of new components, our Teams are also experienced in removing decommissioned generators and equipment from confined spaces.

Collett & Sons Ltd are proven experts within the field of heavy haulage. Having served the Power Generation sector for numerous years, we have an expanding portfolio of successful projects and with our specialised fleet of tractors and trailers we are continuing to assist manufacturers in delivering innovation.
