300 Ton Transformer



Last weekend, one EFACEC Factory Transformer was transported, a regular customer for this type of specialized service, towards the Port of Leixões.

The Transformer weighed about 300 tons and involved the participation of several dozen people, namely, and in addition to LASO, teams responsible for controlling and diverting traffic, monitoring overpasses and a police force escort.

64 Meters Long | 246 Tons



LASO has successfully completed 4 large transports that have taken place over the past 2 weeks between Vale de Cambra (ARSOPI) and Vandellós Nuclear Power Station (Tarragona).
The special characteristics of this transport required a previous study and conditioned, for obvious reasons, the normal traffic circulation. For this reason we appreciate the understanding of all concerned citizens and motorists.
The largest set was 64.00m x 4.50m x 4.80m and weighed about 246 Tons.

World Environment Day



The concern and respect for the Environment is part of the DNA of LASO Transportes SA.
We carry out our business mission while developing and fostering various initiatives and investments aimed at safeguarding the environment.
Also in the course of this year, we have defined initiatives aimed at employees, who aim at habits and behaviors favorable to the prevention of pollution and consequent environmental protection, such as encouraging recycling, separation of waste in offices and workshops, treatment of water from washes and forwarding of used oils for recycling.
Regarding the environmental impact inherent to our activity, there are many possibilities to minimize the side effects of this activity: Regular investment in new equipment and vehicles is always based on environmental concerns, such as the acquisition of vehicles with Euro engines 6. The purpose of this standard is to limit emissions of certain gaseous pollutants produced by road vehicles, in particular CO2 emissions.
In this context, LASO has contributed in a very active way, presenting in the last 3 years reductions of about 2.4 Million Kg CO2 eq.
As a reflection of these results and the efforts made to promote environmental sustainability, LASO plans to obtain another certification at the end of the 1st Semester of this year: ISO 14001: 2015.
Laso, for a better environment.

Switching of transformers in the substation of Praça da Figueira



The substation of Praça da Figueira is underground and is surrounded by a parking lot. For this reason it was necessary to use Civil Engineering studies in order to assess the necessary conditions to stabilize an auto crane for the removal of the Transformer.
For this operation, as well as for the placement of a new transformer, it was necessary to resort to a municipal license that also allowed to condition the transit and to license all the maneuvers that were necessary for the execution of this work.
This service lasted about 14 hours and included several operating departments of LASO.
