Bending machine arrives in Yekaterinburg

A bending machine produced by Switzerland's General Transport arrived in Yekaterinburg this week.

The 300 ton three-roller plate bending machine was shipped from Basel, Switzerland, to Yekaterinburg in pieces weighing as much as 55 tons, according to the Worldwide Project Consortium, BreakBulk.com reports.

Prior to being loaded onto a ship headed for St. Petersburg, the equipment traveled by truck from Antwerp.

After arriving at St. Petersburg, Mortrans transported the pieces overland to Yekaterinburg over the course of approximately one week, according to BreakBulk.com.
