The order included 68 axle lines of the THP/SL heavy-duty modules and 24 PST/SL axle lines. After placing the order in mid-May 2018, the axle lines were delivered within three months.

According to Goldhofer, Sarens is using the additional axle lines for the Tengizchevroil TCO project in Kazakhstan, where the heavy lift and engineered transport provider is responsible for the complete site logistics for the planned construction period up to 2020.

Carl Sarens, director global operations, explained: "We have dispatched around 250 specialists to handle the overland transportation and on-site installation of the pre-assembled units and racks as well as associated oversize equipment.

“For the overland transportation operations, Sarens already had more than 900 axle lines available in Kazakhstan. At the beginning of 2018, however, we saw an upcoming peak in the required logistical capacities.

“We therefore had to urgently increase our capacities to avoid problems in meeting the project schedule. Goldhofer delivered a convincing response with top quality at very short notice and absolutely punctual shipments.“

Sarens’ fleet now includes more than 300 axle lines from Goldhofer.
