Paper cylinder. Fighting the time and the wall of rain

That transport left everyone soaking wet. The 145.5-tonne paper cylinder being transported covered the Opole – Klucze route.

“The dimensions of the set are 39.20m x 5.60m x 6.75m with the overall set weight of 240 tonnes”, says Wiesław Bednarz, president of Bedmet Company. “We used an 18-axle Goldhofer trailer and two 4-axle MAN ballast tractors”, he stresses. And exactly due to the significant weight of the entire set the assistance of the other tractor was necessary at individual stages of the route.

The view was quite impressive for many persons who observed the transport. “In practice, we join a trailer with the moving set by a special drawbar. This aid was necessary when we had to deal with elevations”, explains Radosław Siemasz from the Bedmet Logistic sales department. “The heavy rain didn’t make the transport any easier, and it accompanied us practically for the entire night and in the morning”, he adds.
