March 5 - Van der Vlist is helping transport 17 tower sections from Roermond in the Netherlands to the south coast of the UK, for a new 162 m high tower being built in Brighton.

The job involves moving the tower sections, which weigh up to 66.5 tonnes and measure 12 m long, from Roermond to Ijsselstein, and then on to Krimpen aan den Ijssel, from where they will be shipped to the UK.

Due to the towers' varying diameters, Van der Vlist explained that although low loaders were suitable for the smallest units, vessel bridge trailers were required to move the largest towers in order to make the transport height as low as possible.

The tower sections will be constructed on Brighton waterfront to form the new i360 tower, which is expected to be completed and open to the public in the summer of 2016.
