Mammoet. Their final destination was Bleiswijk, where they were installed as part of the Randstad380kV project.
I made this video for the local media, to give an idea of the scale of the undertaking. I started shooting on Friday night. It was a nasty night with lots of high winds and rain. It really gave the feeling of shooting in a hurricane. I wrapped the camera in protective plastic, and we had an umbrella to shield it from the worst of the weather, but finally, at around 2 in the morning, I gave up and went home. The first transformer hadn't yet cleared its pontoon, but this would've taken hours.
The wind would have made most audio recordings completely useless. Good thing I finally thought of a way to attach my dead cat to my microphone, without it hanging in front of the camera lens. This amazingly simple accessory almost completely eliminates wind noise!
I returned the next morning. By then they were unloading the last transformer and started moving them. Which I proceeded to shoot during the rest of the day. Fortunately, the weather had changed quite a bit and it was nice and sunny.
Shooting was made a lot easier by wearing bright vests with "PRESS" written all over them. Police left me alone or came to chat a bit, whilst clearing away all other people. I could move around freely without my every step being questioned.
Finally, I edited the movie the same evening. I used pieces from the Equilibrium soundtrack to make the shots come more alive.
