Terex Demag move lifts Van der Vlist business

October 10 - European abnormal and heavy haulage provider Van der Vlist has undertaken the recent movement of a Terex Demag CC8800 crane from the manufacturer's factory at Zweibrucken, Germany to the port of Antwerp, Belgium.

The CC800 is at the extreme of heavylifting, with a lift capacity of 1,600 tonnes (pictured below). The project involved 43 separate transports between the loading and delivery locations.

As reported on our website on October 5, Van der Vlist has an international reach in organising heavy haul and out-of-gauge shipments. An example was the movement of a full flight simulator from Miami to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam.

The relocation of training simulator commenced with the transportation and packing of the simulator on site in Miami, followed by surface transfer to Miami port. The cargo was loaded under supervision for sailing to Antwerp, Belgium.

At the same time, the company's Terminal Moerdijk has provided a storage facility for a producer of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) marine loading arms. The loading arms are used to load and unload a variety of liquid and compressed gas products from river barges, ships and ocean going super tankers.

This activity comes as the fleet of ZTT, part of the Van der Vlist Transport Group, has been expanded by investment in two new DAF CF85 3 axle trucks.
