When a 300 tonne oil platform module had to be moved contractor Cranes R Us Nigeria Limited chose 24 axle lines of Faymonville G-SL modular trailer.

The structure was for the Anyala Drilling Platform 1 (ANDP1). It had to be moved from the workshop in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, to the quayside. In addition to its weight, the size of the load had to be accommodated. It was 22.5 metres long, 12 metres wide and 9.5 metres tall. Cranes R Us assembled the trailer modules in a 12-line side-by-side configuration.
