Brazilian JV wins ESTA award

April 26 - Transdata Fagioli do Brasil (TFB) - a joint venture between Italian project forwarder Fagioli and Transdata - has won the award for the best 'SPMT transport job of the year' at the ESTA Awards of Excellence 2013.

ESTA (the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes) awarded TFB the prize for the transport of more than 200 pipe rack modules using SPMTs for a petrochemical plant in Brazil.
The modules ranged from 3 - 9 m in width and between 25 - 35 m high.  As a result, extreme care had to be taken when moving each module, as the centre of gravity was relatively high. Due to the unusual configuration of the frame, two rows of axle line SPMTs were used to move each module.
