Heavy Lift Across the World

Full steam ahead with Nicolas

June 2 - STP Premat has transported several 50-tonne locomotives from Les Mureaux to Saint Avold in France using Nicolas MDEL TP transport vehicles, complete with a special deck for rail cars.

The locomotives were loaded onto the Nicolas vehicles in Les Mureaux ready for the 424 km journey to a railway repair workshop facility in Saint Avold.

Embedded guide rails on the deck of the MDEL TP meant that the locomotives could easily be loaded and unloaded with minimal problems, said Nicolas.

On arrival at the repair workshop, the Nicolas MDEL TP was positioned over rails, so that the locomotive could be driven off by means of a specially-designed connecting piece.

The heaviest combination, which included a 65-tonne locomotive and a 2 x 4 axle trailer combination, had a total weight of 101 tonnes.

Nicolas is a member of the Transport Industry International (TII) Group.
