February 10 - Eskom Rotek Industries has purchased 128 axle lines of the Scheuerle-Kamag K25H, in what is the company's biggest order of K25H modular trailers from the African continent.
The vehicles will support the Eskom Rotek Industries Logistics Services fleet, offering road transport, material handling, warehousing and logistics services, moving electricity generation, transmission, distribution and building equipment to and from site.
Eskom Rotek Industries has a rich history of electricity maintenance support spanning more than a century. Based in Rosherville in the south of Johannesburg, the company has a national footprint in the form of smaller regional and project site offices.
"Our new modular transporters will enable us to move abnormal loads for mega projects and of equipment that exceed the prescribed dimensions and mass permissible on South African roads faster, safer and easier," says Sitsabo Kuhlase, general manager logistics services at Eskom Rotek Industries.
The Scheuerle-Kamag K25H is a modular platform trailer with which a wide range of transport assignments can be undertaken. The vehicle is used as a trailer, semi-trailer or self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT).
