June 21 - Nigerian transport services provider Wellmann Group has used 128 axle lines of Nicolas MHD G2 self-propelled modules to move an oil platform topside at the Nigerdock production yard in Snake Island Integrated Free Zone, Lagos.

The huge unit measured 300 m by 200 m and tipped the scales at 3,340 tonnes.

"The Nicolas MHD SP is in use around the world under toughest conditions - our customers know they can rely on these vehicles under any circumstances," claimed Pierre Berret, area manager, sales at TII Sales.

"The topside transported in this case had an extremely asymmetric centre of gravity," explained Berret, adding that this was no problem for the Nicolas vehicles due to their hydraulic suspension.
