Back to recent events.

The second transformer being unloaded using a special transporter. Each axle automatically raises and lowers itself to keep the load level. The man in the yellow vest is controlling the machine with a remote control. Water was pumped into and out of compartments in the barge to keep it level and at the correct height as the weight of the transformer was moved.
