Sweet transport challenge

Van der Vlist recently moved a 15m long generator from Germany to the Bury St Edmonds in the United Kingdom.

The 3,10m wide unit was 3,85m high and had most of the 50 ton weight centered in the middle. A 2 bed 4 vessel bridge trailer with supports was used to ensure that the unit was fully supported.

The Van der Vlist office in the United Kingdom made all necessary preparations for the movement which had combined transport dimensions of 35.75m long x 3.2m wide x 4.50m high and 112,300 kg. BE16 special order permits were required and Van der Vlist escorts were utilized in order to have the unit, needed for the energy supply of a sugar factory, delivered in time.

Thanks to the diversity of the Van der Vlist equipment and expertise from their staff the unit arrived safely at its destination.
