Boiler solutions

Van der Vlist were recently enlisted to transport a boiler to Épinal, Eastern France. The 50 ton piece was shipped in from Rauma in Finland to Antwerp port.

Due to its size, the routing was very tricky. At 16,8m long, and 4,35 high and wide, the height was a problem to take it directly to France. To bring the height down enough, a vesselbridge trailer was needed; but because of the narrow roads in France, we could not drive into France with this specific trailer.

Therefore the solution was found to re-route via Holland and down to the German-French border, where the boiler was transhipped onto an 8 axle semi trailer, for the last part of the transport from border to Épinal. In France, the semi trailer comfortably could navigate the narrow roads with a total transport height of 5,25m.

The boiler was taken securely on this long way round, and delivered on site for a combined biomass and heat power plant, along with some other smaller parts which were taken on semi trailers.
