With Van der Vlist’s specialist rail trailers, they are asked to move tram carriages for many cities across Europe and worldwide. At the end of September they completed a movement of a new metro to Copenhagen.
The 57 ton carriages were loaded with rail ramps onto Van der Vlist’s 10 axle specialist rail trailer at the Innotrans rail exhibition in Berlin, and then covered for protection. The route included a section against the traffic to compensate for weak bridge structures on the highway out of the German capital, as the 4 axle truck moved towards Rostock.
Upon arrival in Rostock the 39m long 3 carriage metro set a record for the longest ever cargo taken on the ferry to Denmark . The route to the Danish capital also included a notable detour, as the Van der Vlist truck became the first public vehicle to drive on the then unopened Nykøbing Falster bypass, due to tight bends and roundabouts in the city.
The 2,65m wide and 3,5m high carriages were then safely unloaded in Copenhagen directly onto the rail system, and they will now be helping people to move smoothly around the city.
