Large boiler from London to Brussels

Van der Vlist UK recently moved a large boiler from London to Brussels.

We used our 3+5 axle low loader, which can be seen in the photograph below.

Due to the height, it was then transshipped onto a barge in Belgium, and moved via the Belgian waterways to its final destination.

Once offloaded from the barge, it was placed on a short 6-axle drawbar modular trailer for local movement, and once it had arrived it was placed on stools for temporary storage.

Dimensions were as follows:

Length 1050cm x width 560cm x height 440cm, 60,000kg.

There was also a lifting frame to increase these already substantial dimensions!
